12/01/2011 - BridgeSight Signs Contract with Kansas DOT to Perform PGSuper Modifications

News Release - December  1, 2011 - BridgeSight Software signs contract with the Kansas Department of Transportation Bridge Division to customize the open source girder design program PGSuper to fit KDOT's needs for LRFD precast/prestressed girder design. When completed, KDOT will have a custom girder design program that is tailored to meet their needs at a fraction of the cost to develop software from scratch.

07/29/2011 - PGSuper 2.5 Released

WSDOT posted PGSuper Version 2.5 yesterday. It can be downloaded from
http://www.wsdot.wa.gov\eesc\bridge\software
 
This release contains many new features, but probably the most  important are new capabilities for designing and reporting for multiple beams simultaneously. Users can now select multiple beams in a bridge to be designed, and streamlined multi-beam spec check results give you the power to easily compare results. Below is a list of some of the more important new features.
