h1. Overview

The model attached contains four separate structures, shown below in Figures 1 and 2, and listed as follows:

* Two-span bridge created using the [bridge modeler|kb:Bridge Modeler]

* Two-span bridge created manually

* One-span bridge created using the bridge modeler

* One-span bridge created manually

\\

All four structures have the following properties:

* Each span length is 10m.

* Concrete deck sections are 0.5m deep and 3m wide.

* Simply-supported conditions are at each abutment and [bent|kb:Bridge bent].

* A straight [tendon|kb:Tendon], 25mm in diameter, runs along each length. Tendons are prestressed to 10kN (without losses) and located 0.05m from the bottom of each section.

\\

The purpose of this model is to:

* Determine and review internal forces resulting from prestressing.

* Verify the prestressing forces used for flexural design check.

* Compare [frame-element|kb:Frame] forces to the prestressing forces, found through the Display > Show Bridge Forces/Stresses menu.

* Define a section cut through the frame and tendon, review forces, and compare with frame and tendon response at section cut locations.

Flexural response is depicted in Figures 1 and 2:

[Section cuts|kb:Section cut] reveal that individual element forces closely correlate with those induced by prestressing.
