Learn how to add new girder shapes to the PGSuper Library. In this narrated tutorial, Richard Pickings describes how to create a new girder library entry and input girder geometry and prestressing information. The section type created is a CalTrans Wide Flange girder which is based on the Nebraska NU girder shape. However, the concepts can be applied to any shape type in PGSuper.

This session explores:

  • Creating and using Library Entries
  • Configuring PGSuper's Program Settings
