Streamline the design of straight and curved I-girder bridges with LEAP Bridge Steel’s computational 3D design and modeling. Your project will benefit from the software’s advanced load rating and analysis capabilities, which will enable you to evaluate steel bridges faster and deliver your projects on time and under budget.
Maximize efficiencies on your next bridge project:
- Design, analyze, and rate steel bridges using an intuitive interface
- Speed project delivery of complex bridge projects with automatic advanced calculations
- Share data with all OpenRoads applications and with MicroStation
- Create an intelligent 3D model that captures design intent on the fly
- Easily explore design alternatives to maximize cost savings and improve scheduling
- Automatically create virtual bridge models (i-models) enabling your entire project team to easily share and interact with complex project data.
What is New & Changed?
LEAP Bridge Steel (LBS) CONNECT Edition 17.00.01.01 incorporates Bentley CONNECT which helps you produce better designs by facilitating collaboration, interoperability, standardization and skills development. For an organization and enterprise, CONNECT provides greater insight and control over project design, deliverables and the project team.
The following enhancements are available in this release.
- CONNECT Advisor
Get access to relevant help on Bentley Communities, Learn Server and YouTube right from within LEAP Bridge Steel.
- CONNECT Updater
LEAP Bridge Steel CONNECT Edition now includes a notification service from within the CONENCTION Client that notifies you when new versions are available to download and install.
- FEM Speed Improvements
Speed of FEM analysis is improved significantly with this version.
In the previous release, the default live load cases, namely HL-93 and Fatigue Load, were mislabeled as Stage 01 loads in the “Loads” and “Analysis” dialog boxes, and their graphical results are displayed under Stage 01. In fact, internally these loads were correctly applied to the structure in the Final Stage; ideally, their graphical results should have been displayed in the Final Stage. This issue is now fixed in this release.
