Design Systems (IDS) develops and markets Design & Analysis
Software for Civil Engineers who are creating complex bridges.
Our primary products are:
BD2 - 2D Bridge Design & Analysis
BD3 - 3D Bridge Design & Analysis
MC3D - 3D Bridge Construction Geometry Control
Complex Bridges require extensive engineering
with time-dependent modeling and analysis, which cannot be
performed economically by hand. Competitor’s software
applications perform some analysis “in a vacuum”
– lacking the interactive features needed for engineers
to optimize their designs. IDS software is designed by veteran bridge designers, who understand the need for interactivity for maximum productivity and the ability to quickly iterate a design until it is optimized.
IDS Bridge Design and Construction software sets new standards for ease of use. We are totally focused on Bridge Design engineering, and have many years experience as designers of both complex bridges and software to assist in this important task. Our applications are built to conform to international standards, including AASHTO. Every software application that we create is designed with the following in mind:
- Create the easiest application to use in it's class
- Enable the highest productivity for the user, saving countless man-hours of labor in the process
- Provide innovative, advanced features to enable the most comprehensive and safest bridge design & analysis possible
Using analysis software should not be difficult.
At IDS we strive to engineer state-of-the-art software that
meets user’s requirements in a standard
operating environment. This site has been designed to be a comprehensive resource on IDS's Bridge Design Software and Services. Please take your time to explore it completely at your leisure.
