Simulation for Bridges

Starting with a Dassault Systemes’ CATIA® model, one can use physics apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to create simulation models and perform analyses for events such as the movement of trains on bridge decks.

Easton Helsinki, Fully Integrated BIM Design

Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architect's Easton Centre has been pushing the boundaries of integrating BIM into its workflow – it has been as much about process as it has about the final result.

Zaha Hadid Architects: The Danjiang Bridge

Zaha Hadid conclusion was that this project process with engineering data on the cloud resulted in a highly enhanced profit margin if compared to using a conventional process of a file-based approach.
