Hi Rick,

I have a three continuous span PC slab girder bridge. I was trying to get the loads on piers from Bearing Design Parameters Report. However, I could only get the bearing reactions for the two end piers, but not the two intermediate piers. The report has a message saying " Final Bearing Reactions are not available if neither end of girder is simply supported." What is that mean? I do have column and crossbeam defined at intermediate piers.

Thank you, Rick! I got the

Thank you, Rick!

I got the total girder line reaction from Detail Report.
