PILOT STUDY OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEERING SUBSYSTEM OF TIES

THE EVOLUTION OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEERING SUBSYSTEM OF TIES, WHICH ORIGINATED IN A WORK-STUDY PROPOSAL TO BPR BY THE NEW YORK STATE DOT, IS DESCRIBED. THE PROGRAM AREAS HAVE BEEN CONDENSED INTO EIGHT COMPUTER PROGRAMS: CONTROL GEOMETRY, FRAMING PLAN, REINFORCED CONCRETE SLAB DESIGN, BEAM AND GIRDER DESIGN, ABUTMENT AND RETAINING WALL DESIGN, PIER DESIGN, AND BRIDGE QUANTITIES. IN ADDITION, A MASTER CONTROL PROGRAM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED THAT ALLOWS THE EXECUTION OF THE VARIOUS PROGRAMS WITHIN THE SYSTEM IN A PREESTABLISHED ORDER. INTERIM DISK STORAGE PERMITS INFORMATION TO BE PASSED FROM A GIVEN PROGRAM TO ANY OTHER IN THE SYSTEM. EACH PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED BRIEFLY, AND A COST COMPARISON IS MADE BETWEEN THE TIES APPROACH AND THE ORIGINAL DESIGN OF PROTOTYPE BRIDGE.
