To include time dependent properties (such as Creep, Shrinkage, tendon relaxation or change of Young's Modulus E) in the analysis, it is necessary to setup the model as described below.

This article is for SAP2000, but the same concept applies also to CSiBridge.


Define a Staged Construction Load Case

Specify Time Dependent Properties

On the "Time Dependent Material Properties for Concrete", you would also need to specify for which material properties the time dependence should be considered:
