OpenTunnel Designer

Bentley has recently launched OpenTunnel Designer, the first and only purpose-built software for tunnel modeling and design. It introduces a centralized data environment so all project stakeholders can reliably access and share the most current files.

One of the advantages of using OpenTunnel is the easy interoperability of information with software like Leapfrog, PLAXIS®, OpenRoads™, OpenRail™, OpenBridge®, and ProStructures to identify errors and create alternatives for optimum design, safety, and performance.

OpenTunnel Designer can help produce intelligent parametric models. Rich in project information and properties for various tunnel components. The software can also model the excavation shapes, excavation tracks, tunnel lining, and tunnel reinforcement. Perform clash detection with other structures, objects, and utilities to eliminate problems before they occur.

This is a true tunnel model, analyzed and designed with a 3D solution.
