The emerging Digital Twins have brought great revolution in the processes of monitoring and managing assets such as bridges. This work, which is part of a pilot project, aims to evaluate and simulate the fatigue behavior in metallic railway bridges (MRB) supported by a Digital Twin, which in turn is based on Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities. An integrated system based on appropriate software and consisting of three main modules (Input Module; Calculation Module; Output Module) is assembled. The current stage is promising, being possible not only to estimate the fatigue damage for different scenarios but also to visualize it and access other damage-related information.
