File name is OEB8014901. This program determines moments, shears and reactions for Cooper Engine loading moving across a two span continuous beam on one ft. increments. Calculations are at 1/20 points. Any Cooper loading can be entered. Span length total must not exceed 140 ft. Punched card input consists of span lengths, distribution factors, dead load, Cooper load factor and impact percentage. Output consists of input data dump, moments, shears and reactions at one ft. increments. A summary page gives maximum and minimum values of live load, impact and dead load moments at each 1/20 point. Program is currently in a test mode and is being enlarged to provide for a longer span length total and include deflections.
