G.16.1 Moving Load Generator

This feature enables the user to generate static loads on members due to vehicles moving on a structure. Moving load systems consisting of concentrated loads at fixed specified distances in both directions on a plane can be defined by the user. A user specified number of primary load cases will be subsequently generated by the program and taken into consideration in analysis. American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) vehicles are available within the program and can be specified using standard AASHTO designations.
