Fast, Iterative Modeling Capabilities
The Bridge Designer Assistant Wizard allows users to access high level of embedded intelligence to quickly populate a project database with default model features.
The analysis engine provides quick and easy evaluation of deformations and stresses during construction stages and in service.
Workflow Driven User Interface
Enables a user to quickly and easily design and test a bridge structure, utilizing industry standards and best practice methods.
New standards for ease of use
The bridge engineer’s focus is on conceptual, preliminary or final design. Depending on the project, these tasks are complex and time consuming.
IDS software modules provide an environment that the designer understands, such as clear nomenclature, easy access to organized data, and quick response to challenging design issues.
Advanced features promoting Design Optimization
- Engineer “friendly” user interfaces – self explanatory – Context sensitive help
- Built-in “training” features – Software teaches junior engineers – knowledge base
- Focus on key design parameters – Helps senior engineers quickly create superior design
- Interoperability with “office” applications across the network
- Client-Server architecture allowing Internet based collaboration
- The bottom line is a judicious balance of time saving, design refinement and design/cost optimization. Using IDS software, a team of experienced and junior engineers will rapidly converge on an optimal design in a fraction of time needed with existing tools.
Fully Integrated Software Products
IDS Software products are designed with interaction in mind. You may use GEOM3D™ for bridge model creation, with cross-section geometry proper for analysis. Bridge Designer™ modules may then be used for conceptual design, then iterate model properties until satisfactory stresses and deformations are obtained for final design pre-camber. GEOM3D™ may then be used for shop-drawings and precast segmental geometry which can then be seamlessly transferred to MC3D™ for short-cell casting geometry control and as-cast geometry.
Interactive Design Environment
IDS Software is the most comprehensive platform for effectively analyzing and designing post-tensioned concrete bridges under construction and in service. With Bridge Designer Software you will find all the tools for intelligent structural modeling and analysis in one place: automatic 2D or 3D model creation , construction stages with reporting graphical tools means organizations can concentrate on analysis, and design decision-making conducive to bridge design optimization and performance.
Compatibility with CAD
IDS Software modules are conceived to provide the designers with an efficient and productive environment. To that end, compatibility features are included as Export capabilities allowing the designers to visualize 2D and 3D models in mainstream CAD software applications.
Interactivity for Maximum Productivity
Design Quicker, Safer and more Economically
IDS Software products provide interactive tools that help engineers to be more creative, save time and ultimately create more economical and safer structures. Our products are offered in a combination of software licenses and web-supported services, to allow smaller firms access to this sophisticated technology at a fraction of the cost of other methods.
Bridge Designer™ Allows Engineers to be More Creative
IDS software enables engineers to be more creative, in a shorter amount of time than traditional methods. Interactive design software provides an environment that promotes creativity and engineering productivity.
Save Time and Money
Producing optimized design with integration with leading CAD Environments leads to fast turnaround for Bridge Design-Analysis and Construction. The Bridge Designer software provides design guidelines at model creation and uses past knowledge to suggest design solutions and allows shared access to design information, design concepts, e-models and technical drawings, resulting in substantial time and cost savings.
Win Complex Bridge Projects competitions
Designing complex bridge structures requires knowledge of Structural Analysis, understanding of the material behavior, and engineering savvy to design economical high-performance structures.
IDS Software Bridge Designer gives you the computing power to accurately design and analyze complex bridge projects, perform complex time simulation of construction stages and long-term stress-redistribution as well as providing expert construction engineering services and geometry control.
Provide expert construction consulting services
Construction monitoring, and control of casting operations for accurate final geometry, even in complex project situations.
IDS software provides the tools to optimize bridge design. These features are available to safely perform value engineering tasks, saving time and resources for contractors and owners.
Analysis allowing instant graphical evaluation of design options as well as instant graphical evaluation of design parameters provides maximum analysis performance.
Our software can be used for conceptual design, preliminary design as well as final design and construction checks, Because many design assumptions can possibly vary substantially on the construction site, it may be necessary to quickly re-evaluate material properties and environmental conditions effects on deflections and stresses.
Each module conforms to international standards, including AASHTO and LRFD. Bridge designers and builders around the world use our software to model, design, analyze, cast, and erect bridge structures – each according to the specific design and building codes in his/her region.
