Bridge Industry Now Has a Comprehensive Solution for 3D Modeling, Design, Analysis, and Load Rating of Steel Bridges(Bentley)

LEAP Bridge Steel Enables Data Reuse Across the Bridge Lifecycle and Optioneering for Better Decision Making for Steel Bridge Design, Construction, and Operation

Apr 14, 2015 -- Bridge professionals can now benefit from LEAP Bridge Steel, released in July 2014. The new software delivers a comprehensive solution for 3D modeling, design, analysis, and load-rating of everyday steel bridges, which are estimated to comprise approximately 25 percent of today’s bridge projects. It provides the advantage of optioneering – which enables engineers to quickly consider trade-offs between multiple bridge design strategies.

“LEAP Bridge Steel addresses a real challenge in the bridge industry – the need for more robust and efficient systems for the design and analysis of everyday steel bridges,” said Michael A. Grubb, P.E., M.A., Grubb & Associates, LLC. “LEAP Bridge Steel performs a grillage or line-girder analysis, and then performs comprehensive design code checks and load ratings based on the analysis results. I found LEAP Bridge Steel to be intuitive and was pleased to see how quickly a data-rich 3D solid model can be developed, analyzed, and checked for compliance with AASHTO LRFD.”

Users also benefit from faster and more reliable workflows with LEAP Bridge Steel, as well as from minimized rework due to the accuracy and consistency of the 3D models.

With LEAP Bridge Steel,users can:

  • create 3D models of bridge superstructures and substructures, including ground data, all in a single program;
  • quickly evaluate multiple alternative designs;
  • design and construct bridges of a higher quality; and
  • leverage intra-operability with other Bentley applications, including MicroStation, Power InRoads, LEAP RC-PIER, Power GEOPAK, MXROAD, and InspectTech.
