How do we specify the median depth, start and end locations and width (potentially a variable width) in LBC for it to automatically calculate and distribute the load to the affected girders?

To specify the median depth, start and end locations, and width in LBC (LEAP Bridge Concrete) for automatic load distribution to affected girders, you can follow these general steps:

Launch the LEAP Bridge Concrete software and open your project.

Define the geometry and layout of your bridge, including the location and properties of girders, abutments, piers, etc.

In the design section, locate the option for specifying the load distribution parameters. This can typically be found in the "Load" or "Load Distribution" menu.

Specify the median depth: The median depth refers to the vertical distance between the top of the bridge deck and the bottom of the bridge deck. Enter the appropriate value for the median depth based on your bridge design.

Define the start and end locations: Specify the beginning and ending locations along the bridge deck where you want to distribute the load. This could be expressed in terms of distances from the starting point of the bridge or by using specific reference points.

Determine the width: Specify the width of the load distribution. You can either set a fixed width or define a variable width if required. The width is typically measured perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the bridge. Mary Kay In Touch

Once you have entered these parameters, the LBC software will automatically calculate and distribute the load to the affected girders based on the specified criteria. The load distribution will be performed according to the design code and analysis methods selected in the software.

Review and verify the load distribution results. Ensure that the load is distributed appropriately to the girders, taking into account any design constraints and requirements.
