Steel Tied Arch Bridge

RM Bridge Enterprise > Modeler, was used to completely defined the geometry of a skewed Steel Tied Arch Bridge. The structural model is composed by the arches, tie girders, floor beams, diagonals, hangers, braces and the deck cross-section composed by five steel composite beams.  

The bridge project follows the American standard code AASHTO LRFD.

In RM > Modeler was used just one cross-section for the entire structure definition as presented below:  

In Analyzer > Recalculate > Structure check, The User can verify the structural model generated:

In Analyzer, the User can also save the 3D *.dgn file and continue the drawings production in OpenBridge Modeler, as presented below:
