PGSuper™ Overview
PGSuper™ is our Precast-Prestressed Girder design and analysis software. ┬áThis software has been developed by the Bridge Design Office's of the Washington and Texas Departments of Transportation for the Alternate Route Project. PGSuper™ can be used to design, check, and load rate precast-prestressed girder bridges in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specification, WSDOT criteria, or TxDOT criteria. The flexural design feature computes the number and configuration of prestressing strands and the minimum required concrete release strength. The shear design feature determines the number, size, and spacing of transverse reinforcement for vertical shear, horizontal shear, bursting, and strand confinement. Specification checking evaluates girders for compliance with strength, service, and detailing criteria. Girders are evaluated for stresses and stability during handling and transportation. Temporary prestressing to control camber, improve stability, and reduce concrete release strengths may also be input. The capabilities and constraints of local fabricators have been accounted for in this software product. PGSuper™ has been designed to allow for future expansion and updating as design criteria and user expectations change.

PGSuper™ is licensed with the Alternate Route Open Source License.
