Many state DOT's make use of the Inverted Tee Bent Cap system in simple span precast-prestressed concrete girder bridges. PGSuper does not model any specific substructure system, but instead provides a flexible geometric description to accommodate inverted tee bent caps and virtually every other substructure system. This tutorial explores how to define the connection geometry for an inverted tee pier cap.

  • Basic Bridge and Girder Editing
  • Non-uniform Girder Types
  • Adjacent Box Girders
  • AASHTO Libraries and Templates
