Implementation of Automation and Parameterization into Bridge Design
July 26, 2023, at 4:00 PM CEST


This webinar presents the possibilities for implementing parametric design and automation into daily bridge design processes. Not only the design of unique structures is suitable for these techniques, but also the design of very common and “boring” bridges can benefit from parametric design. With the lack of skilled workers in the AEC industry, shorter deadlines, and higher client demands, engineers need to focus more on design than on CAD work.

This webinar shows practical use cases of how Rhino and Grasshopper can be turned into a hub for bridge design, drawing production, and BIM models with the possibility to automate selected workflows.

About the speakers:

  • Ondřej Janota is a bridge designer in AFRY CZ. He is responsible for implementing BIM methods and parametric approaches into bridge design processes. With the knowledge of coding, he promotes the automation of daily tasks. Applying coding to civil engineering, he has authored a few plugins and workflows widely used during internal design processes.

  • Michal Marvan is a bridge designer in AFRY CZ. He graduated from Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Civil Engineering, where he specialized in structural engineering and concrete bridges. As a bridge designer in AFRY CZ, he specializes in applying and widening parametric design and BIM know-how in the AFRY CZ bridge department. Michal is one of the winners of local round Tekla BIM Awards competition in 2022.
