SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 7, 2010 – Interactive Design Systems (IDS) today announced the release of the next generation of its venerable Bridge Design Analysis Software package, Bridge Designer II version 4(BD2 v4).
BRIDGE DESIGNER II (BD2 v4) provides advanced design and analysis for pre-stressed concrete bridges in an elegant, wizard-driven user interface. BD2 v4 is a robust software package that enables engineers to design and analyze a complete bridge model. The software uses basic matrix structural analysis formulation, combined with time-dependent material properties, to carry out a Time Simulation of Bridge Designs under construction. During this process, all stress conditions are checked at every construction step as well as in service.
The latest release of BD2 features a completely redesigned user interface along with a number of important new features:
“BD2 v4 represents a major step forward in Bridge Design ease of use and engineering productivity,” stated Jean-Claude Demosthenidy, President of Interactive Design Systems. “In addition to BD2’s long track record of successful simulations on major bridge projects worldwide, BD2 v4 also sets the standard for software usability.”
Beta testers and early production users have responded with great enthusiasm to the enhanced capabilities and ease-of-use they’ve experienced with BD2 v4:
“We have been using BD2 for over ten years with great results. The new graphical interface in BD2 Version 4 significantly enhances our ability to model and analyze bridges,” stated John Corven, P.E., President of Corven Engineering in Tallahassee, Florida. John added, “The design wizard feature gives us the ability to create typical bridge models in a matter of minutes. Enhanced graphical displays allow us to evaluate the analysis quickly so that important design refinements can be made.”
A Free Trial version is available for download on the IDS website. IDS is currently expanding its sales channels, and is recruiting qualified VAR and Distributor Partners worldwide.
