  • It includes the new Steel Plate Girder Design Tool, following steps laid out in the Federal Highway Administration’s LRFD Design Example for Steel Girder Superstructure Bridge.
  • It features new Prestressed Concrete Design Tool enhancements, such as a structure framing plan, typical section, and beam profile schematics.
  • It offers new Load Rating Tool enhancements that support LRFR analysis of multi-girder systems, slab systems, and multi-cell box beams.
