User Interface
 

File

  • user interface is a Microsoft Visual Basic tabbed dialog with 14 tabs including 3 for Properties, 2 for Loads, and 6 for Design
  • the dialog is filled from the Workbook identified in the Load button procedure
  • path of file may be defaulted to simplify loading of files
  • analysis and output is implemented on Excel Workbooks, one per project
  • older version workbooks can be easily imported into the current version

   

Input (Stage 1)

  • design process is divided into stages which are normally selected in order
  • used to specify basic geometry of the girder and general bridge arrangement
  • the Visual Basic tabbed dialog and the associated Excel workbook are adjusted to display only the details required for the Design Stage selected
  • in Design Stage 1 the Geometry of the girder is specified

   

Input (Stage 2)

  • in Design Stage 2 the Location of the Design is specified
   

Properties 1

  • used to input the material properties and design parameters
  • tab is not editable for Design Stages 2 and 4
  • the Properties 2 tab is used to input the Mid Span section properties
  • the Properties 3 tab is used to input the Girder Ends section properties and the length of application

   

Loads 1

  • linear weight per meter of the dead and superimposed dead loads is defined
  • SLS forces from pre-established force envelopes using BRIDGframe or equal are entered
  • the Loads 2 tab is used to enter ULS and FLS force envelopes

   

Design 1

  • values entered in Design Stages 1 and 3
  • pretensioned strand section properties is input
  • define cross sectional layout of strands within midspan region
  • automated calculation of required jacking force

 

   

Design 2

  • values entered in Design Stages 1 and 3
  • define cross sectional layout of strands at girder end
  • designate hold down locations of draped strand groups

   

Design 3

  • values entered in Design Stages 1 and 3
  • for ULS design at midspan, additional rebar may be added
  • if applicable, temporary pretensioned strands may be added to the girder top to counter primary pretensioning at transfer
  • automated required jacking force determined for temporary strands
  • vibration is checked at this stag
  • the Design 4 tab (for Design Stages 2 and 4) is for user desfined design locations
  • the Design 5 tab (for Design Stages 2 and 4) is for shear design
  • the Design 6 tab (for Design Stages 2 and 4) is for the design of the shear interface between girders and deck

 

   

Print

  • simplified printing of Excel worksheets with project information included in preformatted header and footer

 

   

Features

  • conformance with the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code CAN/CSA-S6-06
  • simple and minimal tabular input for defining composite girder
  • automated calculation of jacking stress required
  • temporary pretensioned strands at girder top may be input
  • automated calculation of rebar requirements for positive moment connection
  • automated calculation of deck rebar required for negative moments
  • importing of input from previous models
  • in service and under construction design checks
  • pop up error messages during modeling process
  • error summary provided on each worksheet
