Computers and Structures, Inc. (CSI), a structural and earthquake engineering software company, has released Bridge 2017 version 19.0.0, is specialized analysis and design software tailored for the engineering of bridge systems.
CSiBridge is specialized analysis and design software tailored for the engineering of bridge systems. Suspension, cable-stay, elevated-roadway, and other types of bridge systems may be modeled and designed to suit any one of a variety of purposes, including means for crossing water, linking points between shear terrain, or extending over highway infrastructure. Customized controls and features integrate across a powerful object-based modeling environment to offer an intuitive, practical, and productive computational tool for bridge engineering. Advanced modeling features and sophisticated analysis techniques account for dynamic effects, inelastic behavior, and geometric nonlinearity. Code-based templates streamline the engineering process from model definition through analysis, design optimization, and the generation of comprehensive output reports. CSiBridge is the premier software for bridge engineering.
CSiBridge 2017 version 19.0.0 Enhancements:
- Graphical User Interface
Several edit menu forms enhanced to allow them to remain open for repetitive use with an apply button.
Keyboard shortcut keys implemented within the menu interface, including customization of the shortcuts.
Hysteresis Models: New and enhanced hysteresis models for nonlinear materials, hinges, and links have been added.
PMM Hinges: A new parametric P-M2-M3 frame hinge has been implemented for use with performance-based design and other types of nonlinear analysis
- Bridge Modeler
Girder-Only Section Cuts: Girder-only section cuts implemented for steel I-girder bridge sections to capture changes in girder sections, staggered diaphragms, and splice locations in individual girders. This also improves the design and rating of steel I-girder sections by better accounting for the controlling section within each panel.
Linked Model: A new action “Clear and Create Linked Model” added to the Action dropdown list in Update Bridge Structural Model form. Once selected, the previous program-generated linked model will be cleared (and cleaned) first and a new linked model created.
Energy Plots: Step-by-step energy plots available for nonlinear direct-integration time-history load cases and for nonlinear static/staged-construction load cases.
Nonlinear Hinges: Model frame nonlinear hinges as links, allowing for use of nonlinear modal time-history analysis (FNA) for faster analysis. Size of the saved analysis results files is reduced for multi-step nonlinear static and nonlinear direct-integration time-history load cases. Speed of creating analysis model from a bridge object improved for the operation that creates the bridge loads.
- Section Designer
Import Geometry: Import geometry from a DXF file into Section Designer.
