This tutorial illustrates the modeling and interpretation of the analysis results of a single span arch bridge subjected to moving traffic loads.

The modeling and analysis processes presented in this example are as follows:

1.   File opening and preferences setting

2.   Define material and section properties

3.   Structure modeling using nodes and elements

4.   Assign structure boundary conditions

5.   Apply moving traffic loads and static loads

6.   Perform structural analysis

7.   Verify and interpret analysis results
