This session is about the new BIM (Building Information Modeling) workflow for bridge design with InfraWorks software, Inventor software, Civil 3D software, Revit software, and Structural Bridge Design software. InfraWorks has become the Autodesk center tool for bridge design in realistic contexts. You can easily and quickly design any bridge proposition. Structural parts of the bridge are automatically predesigned according to each span. With InfraWorks, you can perform line girder analysis in the cloud. You can download the structural analysis file to perform structural analysis with Structural Bridge Design. Customized parametric bridge parts can be created and modified with Inventor and added in InfraWorks. This workflow gives a lot of freedom to create any kind of bridge. Civil 3D will help optimize alignment and profile earthworks and gradings. You can send InfraWorks bridge to Revit with a BIM dynamic link. You can design reinforcement in Revit and create shop drawings. Tunnels can be designed with a similar BIM workflow. Come and see what you can do!

Hi Stephane and Vincent, Interesting lecture! How do you go about creating parametric structures in InfraWorks fitting to more complex alignments, e.g. a double-curved flyover bridge or a tunnel with trumpet opening? Is the best option here still to model it in Revit via Dynamo? Thanks, Andreas

Also, the handouts and presentation downloads are dysfunctional...?
