CONCEPTUAL RAIL DESIGN SOFTWARE

Quick-start rail projects by rapidly creating conceptual designs and improving the decision-making process. OpenRail ConceptStation offers rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge design capabilities to help rail engineers and designers create intelligent models in context. Evaluate conceptual design options with real-world data and cost analysis to rapidly determine optimal designs.

Utilise data acquisition, reality modelling, and conceptual design to eliminate high-cost and high-risk items in the preliminary and planning design stages of your rail network projects.

Using OpenRail ConceptStation, you can:

  • Locate and download online, data-rich context from a variety of sources, such as point clouds, 3D reality meshes, terrain data, images, and geospatial information to bring real-world settings to your rail project.
  • Use 3D modelling with easy-to-use engineering sketching capabilities to quickly conceptualise rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge designs.
  • Rapidly generate multiple design scenarios with associated project costs, and share with project teams and stakeholders to choose the best option.
  • Share realistic visualisations with the public and stakeholders to gather feedback, improve public engagements, and speed project approvals.

Rail network conceptual design software

Designing rail infrastructure projects presents unique opportunities and challenges for rail designers and engineers. OpenRail ConceptStation is a conceptual rail design software that allows you to rapidly create conceptual designs during the preliminary and planning design stages of your rail network projects. The software lets you quickly jump-start your project, improve the decision-making process, and eliminate high-cost and high-risk items. With rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge design capabilities, you can create intelligent models in context and evaluate your conceptual design options with real-world data and cost analysis to rapidly determine optimal designs.

Add digital contextual and render in real-time with cinematic quality

You can incorporate contextual information including reality meshes and model in a real-world setting when you locate and download data-rich context information. Quickly import data from your GIS to create intelligent 3D models letting you jump-start your conceptual design process. You can easily use 3D output from Bentley’s reality modeling software, ContextCapture, to model in a real-world setting. Add data you already have such as GIS and DGN to get more detail in your 3D models. Then create stunning photo-realistic visualizations in seconds using dynamic immersive visualization engine platform providing natural looking light and shadows, real-time global illumination, IES point and spotlights, lens flares, and luminous materials. Interactively adjust time of day, add lens flares, and apply depth of field while benefiting from highly accurate reflections, anti-aliasing, and motion blur.

Evaluate conceptual rail designs with intelligent models

Design your railway with object-oriented capabilities to create track geometry for mainline, yards, stations, and sidings. Add turnouts, crossovers, and other furniture in hours not days using engineering-friendly design capabilities, all while adhering to industry design standards. And evaluate viable track alternatives by creating multiple design scenarios with associated costs to make better decision and optimize rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge designs to address criteria such as clearances and cost assessment for each concept. Quickly load your historical bid tabulations to ensure realistic cost information to help determine the best alternative to move forward into detailed design.

Design electrification systems

You can adhere to industry design standards and enhance your conceptual track designs with overhead line electrification systems from libraries of masts and portals catering for single and double cantilevers and wire runs with stagger and overlaps.
