Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Decide where to use the different tools in the Autodesk solution for bridge design
  • Apply workflows for moving model information between Civil 3D and Revit Structure
  • Describe the steps for initial layout, detailed modeling, and production drafting of a bridge
  • Use best practices and work with limitations in the workflow based on the current tools

Description

Description

This roundtable session focuses on the Autodesk® solution for design and implementation of typical overpass bridges. We also evaluate approaches for working with tunnels, retaining walls, and other structural elements that are common to road, rail, and highway projects. Attendees can learn how these structures can be initially located by the roadway engineer in the context of the road or rail model, further designed and detailed by the structural engineer, and finally used by the contractor for construction planning. Key to this workflow is the ability for all project participants including civil, structural, contractors, and owners to work in a coordinated way with the goal of reducing production cost, compressing project timeline, mitigating risk and improving the overall quality of the end product. This session has a live walk-through of the process, primarily using a combination of AutoCAD® Civil 3D®, the Civil 3D Bridge Module, and Revit® Structure software.
