Join Michael Alestra, Senior Engineer at Pennoni, as he presents an active design project consisting of a 4 span, 390’ long. steel plate girder pedestrian bridge.
See how Michael and the Pennoni team used LEAP Bridge Steel (now part of OpenBridge Designer) to manage and streamline design changes needed to relocate a pier from an original bridge design based on stakeholder feedback.
As the project went through several iterations in design, the ability to efficiently manage geometry changes was crucial to the process. The bridge was analyzed and designed in LEAP Bridge Steel using the AASHTO LRFD 8th Edition and AASHTO Guide Specifications for Pedestrian Bridges and the agencies bridge manual, ensuring it met contract requirements.
By adopting a model-centric approach, using the same 3D model for analysis, visualizations, and 2D plan production, Michael and his team saved valuable time and removed frustrating and tedious rework.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- How to create an interoperable physical and analytical model for steel pedestrian bridge with one single software.
- How to make changes to an existing bridge model (in OpenBridge Modeler) and send it to LEAP Bridge Steel, a component of OpenBridge Designer.
- How to verify the design changes were transferred accurately.
- How to analyze the new structure geometry with previous loading conditions.
