This class will help you to explore preliminary bridge design options by using Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360 to visualize realistic civil structures in the context of the surrounding proposed site. Then Structural Bridge Design software is used to analyze the bridge in the cloud. We run a line girder analysis to verify the structural strength of the bridge girders and ensure they meet design standard requirements. Next we take the design into Navisworks software to uncover design problems and constructability issues more effectively and plan the construction sequencing. The InfraWorks software model is taken into AutoCAD Civil 3D software for precise grading. Then we round trip the model back into InfraWorks for better design communication.
- Learn how to create engineered roads of the proposed design
- Learn how to add bridges to design roads using Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360
- Learn how to verify the structural strength of the bridge girders
- Learn how to incorporate design changes from AutoCAD Civil 3D
Michelle Rasmussen has been using AutoCAD since release 9. Starting out in the Civil Engineering Unit of the U.S. Air Force, she has used Softdesk, Land Desktop, Civil 3D, and InfraWorks software on infrastructure projects for more than 20 years. She has worked for both consulting engineering firms and municipalities laying out subdivisions, designing roadways, and managing infrastructure projects. Her extensive experience also includes writing training guides and instructing users how to use the Autodesk Infrastructure software product line. As a Senior Instructional Designer at ASCENT, Michelle currently writes courseware for AutoCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D, Autodesk Navisworks and Autodesk InfraWorks. The training guides she writes are used by Instructors, students, schools and ATC’s in over 67 countries.
