To generate a beam report

The beam report contains a length report and an elevation report. In this release, the length report is only generated for concrete girders.

The beam length report includes, for every beam in the bridge, the true length (measured along the beam length in 3D), the projected length (2D plan length), and also includes the beam grade(slope) as a percent, direction and rotation about the vertical axis of the beam if any.

Note: In this release, the beam elevation report does not include camber and deflection values read from LEAP Bridge Concrete.

    on the Analysis and Reporting ribbon tab, select the Beam tool in the Bridge Reporting group

    The Preview window opens and the Beam Elevations Report is generated with the elevations at tenth points along the centerline of each beam.

    For steel bridges with built-up beams, the report additionally provides elevations at top and bottom of flange at specified points along the beam length.
