QUESTION: How the program is calculating the Regions in the Shear Connector Design report?
In the Shear Connector output report this is how Region is defined for Strength Condition.
“Region” corresponds to Lp or Ln, so a single span bridge will have two regions, a two span bridge 4 regions, etc.
In the Tutorial 1 file there are 2 spans so the number of regions shown is 2x2 = 4 Regions.
