MOVING LOAD PROGRAM

The file name is SCLOD. The moving load program generates maximum moments, shear, and floor beam reactions as well as deflection factors for simple spans. Maximum load on bridge is determined in order to accommodate weight bridges. The program also generates cooper's equivalence tables for use by the heavy load computer system. Optional given allowable stresses and deflection. The program will generate the minimum requirement for a section modulus (based on movement) and minimum required moment of inertia (based on deflection). The input consists of car configuration and required spans along with E10/rail equivalences.
