File name is SKEW 1. Computer program. Application: Used for ordering most replacement stringers on existing bends of trestles. This program makes all calculations required to order new trestle stringers on existing trestle bents, all or which are usually skewed somewhat and are defined by field measurements. Input includes location information, distance from centerline of track each side on caps that field measurements were taken, cumulative distances left and right to each bent, and bent numbers at which strings joints are desired. Output includes documentation of input, computed cumulative distance to each bent for the centerline of each line of stringer, length of each stringer in each stringer line, and a complete list of all required hardware. This program would not necessarily apply for use by another railroad without alteration to provide for differences in trestle designs and configurations.
