OpenBridge LEAP Bridge Concrete Substructure module abutment load issue


The trapezoidal load is applied as ab abutment load, while the 100kip point load is applied as a cap/stem load with 0.5 x1/L eccentricity along the length of the abutment cap under EH load type. It looks to me like the trapezoidal load is not applied at the center of the abutment cap along its length while the point load is applied at the center of the abutment cap along its length. I would assume that both the loads' location should coincide (at the middle of the length along the cap) based on the Earth Pressure Load help section as below.


Could you provide some insight on this matter? Thanks!
