Finding the optimal hanger layout for network arch bridges can be a challenge. This experiment shows how simple it is to use tools such as Visual Studio and Grasshopper to optimise our design.
The idea of templates to create efficient workflows and speed up engineers’ daily work routines is widely used in BIM design tools such as Autodesk Revit.
Get introduced to the workflow of parametric modelling of a bridge in Grasshopper, SOFiSTiK and Tekla Structure.
BIM and parametric modelling open a new way of bridge design. Learn about the interoperability of Rhino/Grasshopper – Tekla – SOFiSTiK, shown in a master thesis based on a extradosed bridge.
SOFiSTiK has a relatively long history for several aspects of wind analysis in the time domain. The following article shows the various aspects of a bridge with various possibilities.
In modelling of bridges for analyses or for construction, the quick development of the tools is changing the practices and workflows continuously.
Read about the process to automate an AutoDesk Revit model for prefabricated viaducts.
Read about a complete workflow for parametric design of shell structures. used key elements are modules for geometric modelling, load application, post-processing of SOFiSTiK and external programs.
Read the interview with Markus Leschanz about his first BIM Project with the SOFiSTiK Bridge Modeler for Revit.
This article covers the analysis of the wood-steel accessible roof structure of the air pavilion and particularly the presentation of the assumptions adopted for the roof design.
