Bridge Information Modeling designed specifically for steel structures has a new option from Bentley Systems.

LEAP Bridge Steel provides parametric 3D modeling, streamlined analysis, design, and rating of straight and curved I-girder and box-girder bridges. The software is the latest addition to the LEAP Bridge offerings for prestressed and post-tensioned concrete bridge design and rating.

LEAP Bridge Steel allows users to create 3D models of bridge superstructures and substructures, and to quickly evaluate multiple alternative designs.

According to Bentley, LEAP Bridge Steel allows users to:

  • Create 3D models of bridge superstructures and substructures, including ground data, in a single program;
  • Quickly evaluate multiple alternative designs; and
  • Design and construct bridges of a higher quality; and
  • Take advantage of the software’s intra-operability with other Bentley applications, including MicroStation, GEOPAK, InRoads, MXROAD, the Power Civil products, and InspectTech.

LEAP Bridge Steel enables users to leverage the benefits of bridge information modeling (BrIM), including increased efficiency and data reuse across the bridge lifecycle, the company says.

The software also allows for optioneering, which enables engineers to quickly consider trade-offs between multiple design strategies.

According to Bentley, LEAP Bridge Steel's 3D models contribute to faster and more reliable workflows and less reworking.

Bentley says LEAP Bridge Steel produces highly accurate 3D designs that mean less reworking.

When used with Bentley’s LEAP Bridge Enterprise software for concrete bridges, LEAP Bridge Steel provides bridge engineers and designers a comprehensive solution to evaluate multiple concrete or steel design alternatives, according to the developer.

The software adheres to AASHTO Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) Specifications.

Based in Exton, PA, Bentley is a global provider of comprehensive architecture and engineering software for sustaining infrastructure. Founded in 1984, Bentley has nearly 3,000 employees in more than 45 countries.
