QUESTION: Does the program calculate the dead loads of the Wingwall and Approach slab?


If the Approach slab information is added in the program, then in DC load case the user can generate just the approach slab loads on abutment as a force and moment.

Currently we don’t have an option to automatically generate the wing wall self-weight load on abutment and wingwall is only for modeling purpose.

Similar to how the approach slab load is applied, user can manually apply the self-weight load of the wingwall under the “Cap/Stem loads” as a “Force or UDL load”.
