PREDICTION OF LONG-TERM STRESS RANGES. USER'S MANUAL - BRIDGE DYNAMIC STRESS ANALYSIS

The development of a computer simulation program system for generating highway traffic crossing a bridge and calculating the resulting stresses and stress ranges is described. The total system consists of four stand-alone programs which can be used either independently or as a dependent series where output from one program is used as input to the next. Output consists of loading and stress range histograms. IN Report 73-44,a description of the dynamic stress analysis program, BRGSTRS, is given. Included are utilization instructions, data preparation instructions, output and variables definitions, and a sample case.
