CSiBridge can transform the bridge modeling & analysis process to the next level
This construction video is based on the functionalities of CSiBridge. It is a useful construction program for structural engineers to visualize bridge design, analysis and rating of any bridge structure in 3D.
CSiBridge empowers the engineers to efficiently define complicated bridge geometries, boundary conditions and load cases. The engineers can define bridge models parametrically by applying various terms like layout lines, spans, bearings, abutments, bents, hinges and post-tensioning. The software generates spine, shell or solid object models which are automatically updated if the bridge definition parameters are modified.
CSiBridge design is used for the design and retrofitting of steel and concrete bridges instantly and efficiently. With the help of the parametric modeler, the user can produce easy or complicated bridge models as well as make revisions instantly by keeping the design process intact. Lanes and vehicles are characterized instantly and contain width effects. The modeling of construction sequences and scheduling can be easily simulated with easy to use and practical Gantt charts. In order to produce a bridge model, the users can abide by process given in the wizard.
The SAPFire® analysis engine is fully integrated with the CSiBridge design package together with the staged construction, creep and shrinkage analysis, cable tensioning to target forces, camber and shape finding, geometric nonlinearity (P-delta and large displacements), material nonlinearity (superstructure, bearings, substructure and soil supports), buckling and static and dynamic analysis. Besides, AASHTO LRFD design is combined with automated load combinations, superstructure design and the latest seismic design.
