Leap Bridge Concrete for Bridge Design


LEAP Bridge Concrete is a powerful modeling and analysis solution for small to medium concrete bridges of all types:precast, cast-in-place, reinforced, and post-tensioned. This comprehensive bridge application offers a synthesis of geometric modeling, substructure and superstructure analysis and design, and load rating in a single, information-rich environment. Intelligent data management, computational modeling, and automated drawing production revolutionize the bridge delivery process.Leap Bridge Concrete Design and Analysis Software is a BIM software designed and managed by Bentley systems (Producer of Staad pro Structural analysis and design software.

 Bentley Systems is a global leader dedicated to providing engineers, architects, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure. Founded in 1984, Bentley has more than 3,500 colleagues in over 50 countries, and is on track to surpass an annual revenue run rate of $700 million. Since 2012, Bentley has invested more than $1 billion in research, development, and acquisitions.

Why should you learn? 

Users tap into the full power of:

  • Computational bridge layout and design Analysis, design, and load rating for post-tensioned (PT) and reinforced concrete box girder, T-beam, and slab bridges
  • Analysis, design, and load rating for simple- and multi-span precast andprestressed concrete bridges
  • Analysis and design of reinforced concrete abutments, piers, and foundations
