This tutorial was originally for the bridge modeler in SAP2000, but the same concept also applies to CSiBridge.


The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate manual modification of bridge bearings. The bridge modeler automatically generates bearings. Modification is then done outside of the bridge modeler. This tutorial will follow a two-span continuous reinforced-concrete box-girder bridge with four web sections, supported by two bearings at each substructure location. These bearings are centered between each pair of exterior and interior girders. Users may manually modify start-abutment bearing locations through the following process:



Figure 1 - Delete interior bearings



Figure 2 - Move exterior bearings
