Parametric Modelling of Metro Bridges in SOFiSTiK

Bridge design is a dynamic process that challenges you as a bridge designer to constantly adapt the structure to changes during the design process.

Whether it is a minor or a significant change, you may have to rebuild your model completely. In this webinar, Force Structural Engineers and SOFiSTiK UK would like to introduce you to the concept of parametric modelling of bridges in Autodesk AutoCAD. You can easily make changes to your model using the graphical input method.

Force Structural Engineers used a similar concept in SOFiSTiK to design curved metro bridges in Ahmedabad. The project was challenging not only because of the curved nature of the bridges but also because the turnaround design time was relatively short.

Established in 2013, Force Structural Engineers Pvt. Ltd. is an employee-owned company that provides engineering services for the construction of infrastructure projects. The Mumbai-based company is specialized in all kinds of bridges, including long-span like cable-stayed, balance cantilever and extra-dosed bridges.
