PGSuper's flexural design algorithm can sometimes create girder designs that are not usable. In this video, Richard Pickings explores such a case and discusses how to hand-tune a design. The design is for a TxDOT bridge, but the discussion is applicable to all users.

 

This session explores:

  • Basic bridge and girder editing
  • PGSuper's flexural design algorithm
  • Advanced girder editing
  • Design of the girder haunch
  • TxDOT Alternate Girder design
