User Interface  Other Tabs 

Geometry 2
 used to input the geometry of the Abutments and Piers
 used to define Continuous or Semicontinuous superstructures by inputting girder condition over piers during construction
 for noncontinuous piers, forces from bearings and application of load at bottom of shoe plate can be included in the analysis




Geometry 3
 used to establish the Live Load Girder Distribution Factors
 input for Spans may be grouped to simplify data input
 different design parameters for each span may be specified




Properties 2
 used to input the properties of the Abutments, Piers and Piles
 not applicable to noncontinuous Abutments and Piers
 section properties are automatically generated




Loads 2
 define location of each truck load case relative to each other
 allows generation of up to 6 single vehicles passing over the structure independently
 alternatively vehicles may be grouped and then together passed over the structure. 2 groups of 3 vehicles each with up to 15 axles per vehicle or 1 group of 6 vehicles with up to 30 axles may be created




Loads 3
 used to input the Truck Loads and Lane Loads per Lane
 a total of 6 vehicle load configurations may be analyzed in any one run
 all Truck Load Cases and Truck/Lane combinations are automatically compared




Loads 4
 used to define Thermal and Soil Pressure Data for Superstructure
 automatic generation of default values for coefficients
 initial Soil Pressure required only; changing pressures during movement are automatically generated




Loads 5
 used to define Shrinkage & Creep of Superstructure Deck and Girders
 used to input prestressing forces for Prestressing Creep Restraint effects
 automatic generation of Dead Load Creep Restraint effects
 input of Braking and Earthquake data for longitudinal force effects




Combinations 1
 user defined or CSAS606 load combinations
 user defined or CSAS606 load amplification (distribution) to Exterior and Interior design strips or girders
 user defined distribution of loads to substructures
 generates combination for loads on naked girder or composite girder using one model
