Newly Updated Tutorial - Modelling Wearing Surfaces in PGSuper

PGSuper Users,
We just posted a newly updated tutorial that explains new features for modelling wearing surfaces in PGSuper. PGSuper supports several types of wearing surfaces, and each type has different implications on the analysis performed by the software. This white paper details the types of wearing surfaces that PGSuper supports, describes how they are modeled, and explains how each affects the analysis.

The tutorial can be found at http://www.pgsuper.com/content/modeling-wearing-surfaces-pgsuper

Happy bridge engineering!
