Release History





PGSplice™ Release History
Current Version: 0.7.0 - February 10, 2009
Updated to be compatible with WBFL and PGSuper
Archive Version: 0.6.6 - February 26, 2008
  • Erroneous PASS and FAIL messages were being reported for the stress checks. This problem has been fixed.
Archive Version: 0.6.5 - January 08, 2008
  • No changes have been made to PGSplice, however version 0.6.4 is incompatible with PGSuper Version 2.0.4 due to changes in WBFL 2.9.2. PGSplice has been re-compiled to be compatible with changes made to WBFL and PGSuper.
Archive Version: 0.6.4 - December 17, 2007
  • Under certain conditions the specification check summary would indicate a failed condition even though none existed. This problem has been corrected.
  • The image files used in the various reports are cluttering the main application folder. Images files have been moved to a sub-folder called "Images".
  • Fixed a bug in the U-beam cross section
  • Re-compiled to be compatible with changes made to PGSuper version 2.0.3
  • Archive Version: 0.6.3 - August 01, 2007
    • Compatibility upgrade for PGSuper 2.0 and WBFL 2.8.
    Archive Version: 0.6.2 - April 25, 2007
    • Compatibility upgrade for PGSuper and WBFL
    • Renamed template file extension to .spt
    Archive Version: 0.6.1 - November 17, 2006
    • Compatibility upgrade for PGSuper and WBFL
    • Fixed problem computing moment capacities
    Archive Version: 0.6.0 - April 24, 2006
    • Compatibility upgrade for PGSuper and WBFL
    Archive Version: 0.5.2 - February 10, 2006
    • For shear designs done by the modified compression field theory, in accordance with AASHTO LRFD 2005, the average shear stress was computed incorrectly. The shear capacity computations have been corrected.
    • The WSDOT method for computing shear capacity was not consistent with WSDOT BDM 5.2.4F.2. The calculations have been correct.
    Archive Version: 0.5.1 - February 01, 2006
    • There were no actual changes to the software... The program has been recompiled so it is compatible with PGSuper Version 1.8.1 and WBFL Version 2.4.1.
    Archive Version: 0.5.0 - January 25, 2006
    • Data files from previous versions of PGSplice are NOT compatible with this version
    • Implemented support for AASHTO LRFD 2005 Interim Provisions
    Archive Version: 0.4.1 - May 12, 2005
    • Fixed problem computing truck roll stiffness
    Archive Version: 0.4 - April 27, 2005
    • Fixed problem with users inserting and deleting rows from the girder dimension input grid in the Girder Library
    • Temporary support elevation adjustments can be input and used to offset camber and deflection effects.
    • Added variable capacity reduction factor method as a WSDOT alternative to computing capacity of over-reinforced sections per LRFD C5.7.3.3.1. See "Flexural Strength of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete T-Beams" by Seguirant, Brice, and Khaleghi for details.
    • Added function to PGSplice Library Manager program to import library entries from a PGSplice project file.
    • Removed WSDOT logo from main window and report title pages
    • Corrected equations shown in Details report for U-beam distribution factors for shear on interior beams. The computations are correct, however the exponent on the first term was 0.6 instead of 0.8
    • Corrected calculation of live load distribution factor by lever rule for 2+ loaded lanes for U-beam sections
    • Added a Status Center feature as a centralize means of reporting and correcting errors.
    • Girder bearing offset for pier 1 was used at pier 2 when computing girder lengths. This problem as been fixed.
    • Added variable capacity reduction factor method as a WSDOT alternative to computing capacity of over-reinforced sections per LRFD C5.7.3.3.1. See "Flexural Strength of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete T-Beams" by Seguirant, Brice, and Khaleghi for details.
    • The available prestress force near the ends of girders are reduced along the development length to account for under developed strands at ultimate moment capacity
    • Added support for LRFD 3rd Edition, 2004
    • A step function for truck roll stiffness has been added for hauling stability analysis
    • Added user defined concentrated and distributed loads
    Archive Version: 0.3.0 - October 01, 2004
    • For the "Splice Girders Adjacent to Structure" erection sequence, the lifting check for the assembled girder was incorrectly labeled "Casting Yard". Casting yard has been removed from the label.
    • Added optional live load deflection checks per LRFD 3.6.1.3.1
    • Duct positions are now defined when editing the girder. Ducts are defined by an elevation measured at the end and centerline of the girder.
    • Segment lengths were not being stored properly for two segment girders. This problem has been fixed.
    • When the girder concrete strength was changed the new value was not used in the computations. This problem has been corrected.
    • Added Copy Post-Tensioning to Copy Girder Properties
    • Corrected calculation of Dfcdp, used in the computation of Creep losses, for the Post-tensioning after slab casting erection sequence.
    Archive Version: 0.2 - March 01, 2004
    • Initial release
