SIMULIA Integration Partner
BRIGADE/Standard has a unique user interface specifically designed for 3D modeling and analysis of the common types of bridge structures. The intuitive interface is easy-to-learn for new users and yet highly productive for experienced users. The parametric modeling concept is based on typical bridge components such as stake-out line, support lines, bridge deck, longitudinal and transversal beams, prestress tendons, bearings, columns, abutments, foundations etc. In addition BRIGADE/Standard includes predefined loads, vehicles and load combinations in accordance with a wide range of design codes including the Eurocodes with various National Annexes. BRIGADE/Standard is based on an integrated Abaqus solver.
BRIGADE/Plus provides an easy-to-use environment for modeling of all types of bridges and civil structures. The intuitive user-interface integrates modeling, analysis and visualization of results and the parametric, features based modeling concept enables efficient modeling of complex structures. In order to facilitate the modeling, BRIGADE/Plus offers a complete range of advanced analysis capabilities such as transient and steady state dynamic analysis, non-linear material models and contact interactions. BRIGADE/Plus also includes predefined loads, vehicles and load combinations in accordance with a wide range of design codes including the Eurocodes with various National Annexes. BRIGADE/Plus is based on an integrated Abaqus solver.
