Autodesk Structural Bridge Design software helps engineers achieve greater flexibility and efficiency in the design of small-to medium -span bridges by integrating loading, analysis, and code checking processes. To help accelerate project completion, design options can be refined faster with automated updates in a define-analyze-code check loop whenever parameters change. Engineers can also improve accuracy and reliability by reviewing code check requirements with detailed “hand” calculation –style design sheets that are created with full formulate and code referencing. Users can deliver design reports faster using more accurate, reliable, consistent, and verifiable data throughout the project life cycle.
