  1. 1
    Parametric Modelling in Spreadsheets

    Create detailed 3D bridge model and analytical representation of bridge by putting individual components together - just like putting Lego pieces together. OpenBrIM brings Lego concept to engineering.

  2. 2
    Run FEA in Your Browser

    Run Finite Element Analysis to capture results. OpenBrIM.FEA 100% cloud-based, cross-platform, high performance, 3D finite element simulation software specifically designed for the bridge engineering industry.

  3. 3

    Validate your designs per AASHTO LRFD 9th Edition and DOT Amendments. OpenBrIM reinvents specification checks by giving users the power to change or comment on the design procedure with its open-source OpenBrIM Library.

OpenBrIM Platform Takes Complexity out of Digital/BrIM Delivery for Bridge Owners

Reduce Bridge Operating and Management Cost With OpenBrIM Technology

  1. 4
    Create Dynamic & Parametric Reports

    OpenBrIM dynamic summary reports contain analysis results, specification checks, 2D-3D drawings, quantities, cost and more. Design firms can use OpenBrIM Library to customize the parametric dependencies and displayed parameters in the dynamic summary reports per DOT requirements.

  2. 5
    Sign and Seal The Deliverables

    Use OpenBrIM.Sign services to sign and seal the document online. Any change made to the documents after you sign the document, immediately invalidates your signature. The document will need to be approved and signed again.

  3. 6
    Use OpenBrIM Asset Management Services for the Bridge Life Cycle

    Utilize the same model for inspection management, permit routing, health monitoring, load rating and more. Run load rating or check structural safety based on deteriorated condition of the bridge in months minutes.
