In bridge modelling everything naturally starts with an axis.

The first task is to define or import the axis based on the existing data and using different file formats. In Allplan Bridge, however, axes can not only be used for determining the global alignment of the superstructure, but there are much more possibilities to easily and flexibly describe the geometry of certain structural parts.

For example, accompanying axes in combination with special implemented functions can be used for accomplishing varying deck widths between a reference and a boundary axis.

Further, transversal axes can be used for defining structural parts that are oriented in the transversal direction of the main structure.

Also, piers can be linked to a terrain axis and automatically adjust their height depending on it.

Finally, all the defined axes can be output in a detailed report providing all the inputted and calculated data of the plan view and of the elevation.




  • Axis definition/import using different file formats
  • Accompanying axis with reference to a main axis
  • Transversal axis for transversal members
  • “Terrain axis” for linking piers
  • Report of the axis data (in GUI and to Excel)
