New! PGSuper's geometric features allow you to model highly complex roadway and superstructure gometries. In part 1, we model a three-span tapered bridge on a simple horizontal curve. This model has splayed girders and many other complex features.

This session explores:

  • Basic Bridge and Girder Editing
  • Horizontal Curved Geometry
  • Spans with different numbers of girders in each
  • Spans with unique spacing and splayed girders
  • Non-prismatic decks
  • Use of multiple different girder types in a bridge
  • Beginning bridge models with a starting span number other than Span 1
