BridgeLink Description

BridgeLink is an integrated bridge engineering software tool for analysis, design, and load rating. BridgeLink links together several different bridge engineering software tools into one convenient and easy to use platform.

BridgeLink currently supports the following software tools:

  • Barlist - Reinforcing steel quantity estimating tool
  • BEToolbox - Bridge Engineering Toolbox utility programs
  • PGSplice - Precast-Prestressed Spliced Girder Design, Analysis, and Load Rating
  • PGSuper - Precast-Prestressed Girder Design, Analysis, and Load Rating
  • TOGA - TxDOT Optional Girder Analysis tool
  • XBRate - Reinforced Concrete Cross Beam Load Rating

Features

Barlist: Barlist is a reinforcing steel quantity estimating tool featuring an Explorer-style interface for managing reinforcement groups and bar records, an interactive bend guide for selecting bend diagrams, and support for third party add-in components.

BEToolbox: BEToolbox is a Bridge Engineering Toolbox. It contains a collection of utility programs for computing section properties, roadway geometry, prestressed girder stability analysis for lifting and shipping, response spectra generator, and circular column capacity.

PGSuper: PGSuper is Precast-Prestressed Girder design, analysis, and load rating software. PGSuper can be used to design, check, and load rate precast-prestressed girder bridges in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specification and DOT agency-specific criteria. The flexural design feature computes the number and configuration of prestressing strands and the minimum required concrete release strength. The shear design feature determines the number, size, and spacing of transverse reinforcement for vertical shear, horizontal shear, bursting, and strand confinement. Specification checking evaluates girders for compliance with strength, service, and detailing criteria. Girders are evaluated for stresses and stability during handling and transportation. Temporary prestressing to control camber, improve stability, and reduce concrete release strengths may also be input. The capabilities and constraints of local fabricators have been accounted for in this software product. PGSuper has been designed to allow for future expansion and updating as design criteria and user expectations change.

PGSplice: PGSplice is Precast-Prestressed Spliced Girder design, analysis, and load rating software. PGSplice can be used to design, check, and load rate precast-prestressed spliced girder bridges in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specification and DOT agency-specific criteria. Analysis is performed with a detailed time-step methodology. Specification checking evaluates girders for compliance with strength, service, and detailing criteria. Girder segments are evaluated for stresses and stability during handling and transportation. Temporary prestressing to control camber, improve stability, and reduce concrete release strengths may also be input. The capabilities and constraints of local fabricators have been accounted for in this software product. PGSplice has been designed to allow for future expansion and updating as design criteria and user expectations change.

XBRate: XBRate is a reinforced concrete cross beam load rating application. XBRate can function as a stand alone BridgeLink application providing load rating calculations for cross beams for virtually any bridge superstructure type. XBRate can also function as an extension to PGSuper and PGSplice As an extension, pier geometry and reactions are extracted directly from the bridge model and used in the load rating analysis.
