IT company Allplan Infrastructure has developed 4D building information modeling (BIM) software for designing bridges.

Allplan Bridge 2020 covers for parametric modeling, structural analysis, and according to the company, the analytical model is automatically derived from the physical model so that design changes are made, all associated bridge elements, including the analytical model, adapt immediately.

‘Allplan Bridge 2020 is the world's first fully integrated solution that uses a common parametric model for both structural analysis and detailing, said Vanja Samec, MD. ‘The minimal time required for changes or variant comparisons greatly speeds up bridge design processes and iterative improvements can be used to develop an optimal design.’
