AASHTOWare Bridge Management

The AASHTOWare™ Bridge Management software (BrM) was first developed under an NCHRP project sponsored by the FHWA in the early 1990’s and soon thereafter was transferred to AASHTO for further development, maintenance and support. For over 20 years BrM has seen dramatic improvements due to technological changes, product innovations, and, most importantly, direct user feedback. As a key product in the AASHTOWare software suite, BrM continues to be widely used as the primary bridge management software by transportation agencies across the U.S., and internationally.

AASHTOWare’s efforts are headed by a Task Force comprised of State bridge engineering and information technology professionals. This Task Force manages the product and the contractor’s efforts on behalf of AASHTO and the user community in order to ensure development, maintenance, and support of the software meets the needs and requirements of current bridge owners in State and local agencies, governmental organizations such as the FHWA, and private consultants.

The latest official release of BrM is 6.2 which was accepted by the TAG and approved by the Task Force for release in August 2019. Agencies wishing to install and use this version should contact the contractor via email or phone call to request the software.

AASHTOWare Bridge Design and Rating

AASHTOWare Bridge Design and Rating Products are comprehensive bridge design and load rating tools developed by AASHTO. For an agencies’ bridge inventory, the products store detailed bridge descriptions sufficient for structural analysis. AASHTOWare Bridge Rating (BrR) is the tool for rating bridge superstructures in accordance with the AASHTO Manual for Condition Evaluation of Bridges, AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation, AASHTO Standard Specification and AASHTO LRFD Specification. AASHTOWare Bridge Design (BrD) is a tool for assisting in the design of both superstructure and substructures in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD specification. The two products share much of their user interface and database. When both products are licensed a bridge can be designed using BrD and be immediately available to BrR for load rating without having to enter and validate additional data.
