Bentley System launched OpenRail – A robust BIM software for design & maintenance of rail and transit infrastructure

Bentley System launched OpenRail design and maintenance software to apply BIM for the broad planning, engineering, project delivery, and operations of rail and transit infrastructure.

It deals with vertical and horizontal track geometry as well as produce 3D models for analysis and visualization and reports for cost estimates and setting-out, and product construction deliverables. OpenRail will get together digital components and digital context, during digital workflows.

OpenRail applications will consist of OpenRail ConceptStation which can be used for conceptual railway planning and design. In future, OpenRail Designer will be accessible for detailed engineering and 3D design of track, overhead line, tunnels, bridges, and interrelated civil infrastructure and AECOsim Station Designer will be applicable for the comprehensive modeling of rail and transit stations.

OpenRail is developed on the basis of a connected data environment that includes the shared services of ProjectWise…
