9/16/2010 - New Tutorial: Modelling Lightweight Concrete Using PGSuper

Enhancements made in PGSuper Version 2.4 include support for modeling lightweight concrete. Engineers can now define both the girder and deck concrete as normal weight, sand lightweight, or all lightweight concrete. This new tutorial describes how to model lightweight concrete material properties in PGSuper.

10/28/2009 - New Tutorial - Modeling Inverted Tee Pier Caps - at PGSuper.com

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.
