Functions and Features

Functions and Features

This program is based on the Specifications for Highway Bridges Part IV Substructures (March 2012) and Part V Seismic Design (March 2012).
A bar arrangement drawing, assembly drawing, processing drawing, and rebar list, etc. can be created at once from a general drawing. It has a simple edit function, and files can be exported in each file format such as DXF, SXF, DWG, etc.

3D bar arrangement viewer function

The 3D bar arrangement viewer shows 3D models of civil structures and rebars in real dimension and allows users to check complex bar arrangements. Data can be saved and exported in data format of "3D bar arrangement CAD" and "Allplan" that FORUM8 sells separately. This function enables the secondary use of 3D models. In addition, "3D bar arrangement CAD" has a check function of bar arrangement interference. Users can easily check bar arrangements by using 3D models exported from this viewer.

Cooperation between Pier design and Foundation design

When the foundation format in the Pier 3D bar arrangement is "Pile foundation" or "Pile foundation 2.5 dimension analysis", the program data can be cooperated with the data of Foundation 3D bar arrangement in real time. Compared with the general file cooperation, data is exchanged seamless in both directions. This enables an integrated design, reduces the work burden, and improves the work efficiency.
"Pier Design 3D bar arrangement (Japan Standard / English version)" can be cooperated with "Foundation Design 3D bar arrangement (Japan Standard / English version)".
The products above are based on the Road and Bridge Specifications in 2012, and "Foundation design calculation Ver.9 (English output)" is based on that of 2002 version. So these products that complies with the different standards cannot be cooperated.
