Interactive Design Systems (IDS), founded in 1987, develops Bridge Engineering software with unique, important capabilities: time-dependent construction simulation. Our software helps bridge engineers, bridge designers and builders in design firms, governmental and educational entities, to design better structures more economically.
IDS is a leading supplier of engineering analysis software for Bridge Design. We provide computer-based solutions for Bridge Engineers and Designers who need sophisticated analysis for complex bridge structures. The company’s philosophy is to develop products that provide an outstanding combination of functionality and ease-of-use at affordable prices.
In addition to the Company’s first software product Bridge Designer II and its graphical user interface BD2GUI used by many consultants and bridge design groups worldwide, we have developed specific geometry tools for 3D bridge modeling.
The Bridge Designer User Interface is built to support 3D modeling from the start, and provides access to both two- and three-dimensional analysis engines.
Our GEOM3D and MC3D software products are dedicated to segmental bridge modeling with the purpose of geometry control during construction. Our three products used together offer a unique complete solution for design, analysis, construction, geometry control and management of as-cast concrete post-tensioned segmental bridge structures. IDS Software modules are routinely used for the following types of bridges and projects:
Post-Tensioned Concrete Segmental Bridges
Time dependent Analysis & Design of Concrete and Composite Bridges
Composite Cable-Stayed Bridges
Non-Linear Analysis of Composite Cable-Stayed Bridges
Spliced-Girders and Composite Sections
Pre-Cast Bulb-Tees – Spliced Girders – Composite Bridges
Pre-casting Operations of Concrete Segmental Bridges
Geometry Control and Erection Monitoring
IDS Software is designed with you, the user in mind. We provide a unique approach to customer support 24x7x365 via email and telephone. We support our users from day one and make certain they meet their bridge design and construction goals immediately using our software tools. In addition IDS offers installation support and training services during the start-up phase for all or modules.
