A well-designed Diverging Diamond Interchange has the potential to improve safety and reduce traffic delays more effectively and at a lower cost than a traditional interchange. DDI designers, however, are faced with the challenge of balancing competing factors, such as the footprint, geometry, safety, design vehicle accommodation and cost. This has traditionally been a manual, time-consuming and often tedious process.
NEXUS DDI is a CAD-based tool that enables designers to quickly generate DDI geometries based on site-specific constraints, design guidelines, lane configuration, design speed and vehicles. With dynamic editing capabilities, the software provides real-time feedback of geometric parameters. Valuable design and drafting time will be saved by reducing the need for manual design methods and calculations during the DDI project’s proposal, conceptual and preliminary design stage.
With NEXUS DDI’s intuitive geometric design workflow, even less experienced designers will become confident while gaining the vital knowledge required to take on complex DDI design projects.
