RM Bridge V8i (SELECTseries 3) is the 4th major release of the renowned and widely used software suite RM Bridge V8i, succeeding RM2006 in 2009. The software performs analysis and design of arbitrary bridge structures ranging from small standard bridges to world record cable stayed and suspension bridges.
Engineers use RM Bridge to solve virtually any engineering challenge, and they depend on the software to deliver more than structural analysis results. RM Bridge enables engineers to take a more integrated approach in the creation and construction of bridge systems, which in turn reduces risk and helps deliver top-performing bridges.
Comprehensive, Integrated Offering
RM Bridge is a family of integrated software applications that enables users to solve any engineering problem in a single engineering environment. Engineering organizations no longer spend valuable time re-inputting information or re-engineering data midstream. RM Bridge users develop and analyze a consistent bridge model in a continuous cycle, greatly increasing engineering efficiency. The system ensures accuracy and fidelity of the bridge information as it is seamlessly reused, refined, and reprocessed across the design, engineering, and construction phases.
RM Bridge also performs 4D time-dependent analysis, providing immeasurable benefits throughout the design-to-construction process. The ability to model a bridge over time brings a wealth of analysis possibilities and delivers real-world results for construction sequencing and erection control. Through time-stepped analysis, engineers can consider all types of nonlinearity.
Comprehensive analysis and proof-checking procedures can be run at any time. RM Bridge allows easy modification of bridge model parameters so that users can quickly make changes without recreating new parametric and analytical models. The system comprehensively analyzes all changes for all results.
