ARcBridge is a software that automatically designs R.C.Ramen bridge, R.C.Slab bridge, R.C.Arch bridge, and π type Rahmen bridge. It can also automatically do design drawing, structure calculation (2D/3D), quantity calculation, thus making it the best software available for RC bridge design.
- It supports SI units and converts the units anytime easily by toggling once. - It designs exposed/underground Rahmen according to various design standards including railway bridges. - As a function of auto meshing, it can interpret 3-dimensional plate without any additional input separately. - It automatically supports all types of right bridge, skew bridge, and curved bridge in accordance with their lines and also supports road corner bridges. - The one-click design review function makes it possible to do optimum design without the output of structure calculation sheet and design summary. - The function of calculating the quantity of optimum reinforcement bars provides the reinforcement bar diameter which comes close to the safety factor defined by a user. - It is possible for a user to adjust the locations of reinforcement bar connections and numbers of joints at his/her discretion. - It can set up double reinforcement bars at each place and it is possible to remove reinforcement bars at the places where they are not required. - It can arrange reinforcement bars while overlapping and checking BMD/SFD on the main reinforcement bar assembly drawing and the standard cross section. - Just by selecting forms, it can complete the placement of reinforcement bars of auxiliary structures such as median strip, protective wall, and foundations of pillars at both ends of bridge. - It can optimize the quantity of reinforcement bars and the designer can decide on the required safety factor. - It is possible to install wing walls on the back and side of the walls and it supports the free input of wing wall shapes. - It provides various reinforcement bar placement options(Linear direction arrangement. whole reinforcement arrangement, partial reinforcement arrangement).
- Exposed Rahmen and underground Rahmen - Road bridge and railway bridge - ARcBridge general -- Door type, π type, and slab bridge. - ARcBridge_Plus -- Slant pier type(Type-1, Type-2), arch type. - Structure of slab bridge upper part (As a data-sharing function, it is compatible with AAbutPier which is a lower part design program.)(It is expected to be supported.) - It supports the way in which various bridges can be input with one input. So, it is possible to design various types of bridges in one file.
- It supports all linear types used for road bridges and railway bridges such as circled line, clothoid, oval line, and cubical parabola. - It supports rectangular designs by point and road corners at both ends of the bridge. - It supports various types of slab reinforcement bar placements. - It supports various types of foundation designs. - It supports various types of middle walls(It supports wall-type, round, rectangular, track-type, and other multi-angle-type pillars.
- As a realtime stretch function, it can immediately amend the data of structures on the input screen.
- As it works with one file, it is possible to work for other similar bridges within the same section of works. - In order to save working time and work jointly, it provides the function of sending out bridges, and in order to manage as one file, it also provides the function of calling bridges. - As a design review function by input stage, it prevents trial and error as much as possible at the time of designing. - It minimizes input errors as input items are displayed on the screen on a 1:1 scale. - It can promptly supports users' requirements and functions to be improved. - It supports design drawing standardization(HCAD) of Korea Expressway Corporation. - It supports the layer system of Korea Railroad Corporation. - It provides the convenience of upgrade by using a real-time automatic update function.
- Basis: Longitudinal ground plan, geological columnar section basic drawing. - Body: General drawing, main reinforcement bar assembly drawing, reinforcement bar assembly drawing of skew bridge end, standard cross section, reinforcement bar placing drawing, reinforcement bar material table. - Wing wall: Reinforcement bar placing drawing, reinforcement bar material table. - Slab connection: Reinforcement bar placing drawing, reinforcement bar material table. - Other drawings: EL calculation basis, protective wall, sound-proof wall foundation, median strip, reinforcement bar placing drawing, drainage detail drawing.
- It supports 2-dimensional frame interpretation and 3-dimensional frame interpretation. Depending on the intension of a user, it is possible to apply optionally, or it is possible to apply a maximum value after comparing results. - The results of 3D interpretation can be partially applied(such as obtuse angle)(It is expected to be supported).
- It provides the function of interpreting resistance to earthquake. - Basic design in accordance with various basic forms(file, direct basis, mass basis). - Wing wall, slab connection calculation function. - It supports various kinds of surcharge load(DB load, DL load, LS load, EL load, HL load, light rail transit and so on).
- All quantities shall be saved in Excel file. - Body, wing wall, slab connection quantity calculation, civil work quantity calculation(general/performance). - Function of calculating the total quantity of structures including the quantity data of lower part worked at AAbutPier.
