Bridge Design

The SOFiSTiK module portfolio is especially powerful and versatile for advanced analysis and design in all fi elds of bridge engineering. Seamless integration of construction stage analysis, precambering and force optimization for large bridges is available. Analysis with nonlinear effects as well as economical influence line evaluation is possible. From a library of standard load models (roads and railway) to special design and serviceability assessments a large amount of design code information is implemented.
