Positive Restraint Moment

HI,
I was wondering if PGSuper calculates the positive restraint moments at pier locations?
I tried looking in the PGSuper help files but couldnt find anything.

Edit: just to be clear when I say positive restraint moment I am referring to 5.12.3.3.2 of AASHTO LRFD 2017 bridge design specifications

Thanks in advance

PSGuper does not automatically calculate the positive restraint moments. The following article from the Technical Guide details how simple spans made continuous are handled.

You can compute the positive restraint moments using your preferred procedure and then input them using the user defined moment loads.
