Girder Flange Bottom Elevation

Hello,

Is there a way to specify the bottom flange elevation of a girder at a pier? I am trying to model a bridge that has level cap beams, with a +/-2% slope for the transverse roadway. The slope of the roadway seems to change based on "A" dimension of the girder increasing over the interior girders. I was wondering if there was any modelling suggestions anyone had?

Thank you,

Karl

The bottom of the girder elevation is always computed downward from the top of deck. The roadway cross slope is independent of the "A" dimension. If you input a 0.02 ft/ft slope, that's what you get. If you want the bottom of the girders to be at the same elevation and a 0.02 ft/ft cross slope, you will need to input a unique "A" dimension for each girder.

Thank you Rick,

That what I was thinking, thank you for your help!
