DEEP DIVE Infrastructure 2022 - Allplan Bridge & Allplan Road

Several new features were implemented to enable a further modeling approach for precast girder bridges that not only simplify this workflow but can be used more broadly. To optimize the modeling process even further, for any bridge type where bridge elements are being repeated, the new version of Allplan Bridge enables users to create and use parametric 3D templates. The implemented version of AASHTO LRFD 9 covers strength limit states, service limit states, and fatigue limit state of reinforced and prestressed sections with the check of some detailing rules for designed reinforcement.

With the new Allplan Road terrain and road modeler, we want to provide a high functional, high performant but easy-to-use solution. Our goal was to be able to model complex cross-section geometries and make project changes at any time throughout the design process. Despite the ability to model geometrically complex road structures, we have placed particular emphasis on a high level of user-friendliness in terms of a clear input interface and intuitive workflows.
