DOT Webinar Series: Parametric modeling of highway bridges – concept to detailed design.

 

Learn everything you need to know about importing horizontal and vertical alignment data, referencing surface and road alignment data, placing a bridge at specific stations emphasizing grading around abutments, leveraging custom bridge parts, rebar placement, exporting bridge models, and plan set production.

Learning Objectives: 

· Develop bridge concepts using parametric BIM.

· Perform design and structural analysis.

· Refine options in an iterative manner to detailed design.

· Exporting for 4D/5D simulation.
