QUESTION: If the user is working on an adjacent box beam design with a 6% super elevation. Can super elevation be entered into Conspan for analysis?


This is the moment capacity by Strain Compatibility. Choice for SC or AASHTO equations is under CONBOX Settings/Design parameters. 

Right now if the user is using Standalone conspan then it is not possible to input the 6% Super elevation information but you can still input the Radius info.

If the user is using Leap bridge Suite then in ABC wizard you can input both Radius as well as cross slope (%) information which will then get transferred to conspan.

The other option is inputting the super elevation (6%) information in Geomath.
