Engineering Encounters is the developer of West Point Bridge Designer 2015 that supports Windows and Mac Platform. This software was previously known as West Point Bridge Designer.
This software contains some useful tools to model, analysis, and optimize a steel highway bridge on the basis of reasonable specifications, constraints, and performance criteria.
With its user-friendly interface, Civil Engineers can quickly produce designs by utilizing any shape or according to their preferred configuration. The users can explore with various alternative configurations and apply the best possible solution. This construction software offers the similar functionalities of a CAD software and simplifies the process for heady-duty mathematical calculations.
Initially just create design of a bridge on your computer and apply West Point Bridge Designer to verify whether it is endurable to bear the stipulated highway loads. The test is conducted by a full-color animation demonstrating a truck crossing your bridge. If the design is substantial enough, the truck can easily pass through it successfully; if not, the structure will break down.
Once the bridge is broken down, it can be restructured by modifying the properties of the structural components that construct the bridge, or by modifying the configuration of the bridge itself.
If the bridge can successfully bear the highway loading devoid of collapsing, the design can be clarified, with the aim of reducing its cost.
