PGSuper Professional Exclusive Features

Girder Design Dashboardtm

BridgeSight’s Girder Design Dashboardtm puts engineers in control of the most important precast girder input and design results in a single, easy-to-understand view.

Get instant analysis results of the strength and service limit states as you change concrete strength, prestressing and mild steel reinforcement.

Pro-Only Girder Sections

Custom girder sections to meet your exacting needs: including a PCI Northeast Extreme Tee (NEXT) Beam that knows how to compute live load distribution factors per PCINE recommendations, a slab beam with rectangular voids, and more.

  • PCINE NEXT D & F Beam
  • Rectangular-Voided Slab
  • Florida I-Beam Shape
  • Illinois I-Beam Shape

Export Substructure Analysis to VBent

BridgeSight Inc has joined forces with our friends at Viathor (http://www.viathor.com) to bring PGSuper Professional and VBent customers a powerful new way to integrate superstructure and substructure design. The BridgeSight VBent Exporter extracts information from your PGSuper model and prepares it for import into VBent. Direct Import of superstructure geometry and structural analysis results into VBent saves time, money, and increases accuracy.

Export Analysis Results

PGSuper computes thousands of structural analysis results, including moments, shears, deflections, and stresses. Use PGSuper Professional to export analysis results directly into Microsoft Excel or comma separated value (CSV) files.

Enhanced Library Management

PGSuper Professional’s enhanced library management features makes it easy to share individual library entries between PGSuper projects and Master libraries.

Pro-Only DOT Configurations

Get PGSuper For Your State! Our growing online library of Professional PGSuper DOT Configurations puts a growing number of agency’s standard girders and design policies just a few mouse clicks away. A list of currently supported DOT's can be found at http://www.pgsuper.com/ConfigurationLib

PGSuper To AASHTOWare Bridge Exporter

Use PGSuper to design your precast bridge superstructure, then export the detailed bridge model to the AASHTOWare Bridge Database for verification, rating, and bridge management with BrR, BrD, and BrM (formally Virtis, Opis, and Pontis).

Translated data includes the bridge framing information, concrete, reinforcing, and prestressing materials, LRFD resistance factors, load case descriptions, sidewalk definitions, allowable stress limits, prestress losses, live load distribution factors, and much more.

Enhanced Reporting

PGSuper Professional adds powerful new reporting capabilities to PGSuper

The BridgeSight Moment Capacity Details Report gives a complete record of PGSuper’s strain compatibility analysis. Details include a graphical representation of the idealized girder section, tabular listing of the contribution of each "slice", and the computed section capacity.

Elevations can be computed anywhere on the roadway surface using the BridgeSight Roadway Elevations Report. Deck elevations can be computed at uniform increments between a starting and ending station, or at any number of individually defined station/offset locations.

3D Visualization

See your structure from every angle with the powerful BridgeSight 3D Viewer using pan, zoom, and rotate features. Look inside and understand how the components of your girder fit together.

LandXML Data Exchange

PGSuper Professional adds LandXML import and export capabilities to PGSuper. Use this feature to import alignment and profile data from roadway design software or export PGSuper’s alignment and profile data to other software packages.

DXF Export

Quickly create accurate drawings and sketches of plan and section views of your PGSuper bridge model.
Export DXF 2000 files to AutoCAD, Microstation, Visio, and many other CAD programs.

Bearing Seat Elevations

Accurately compute bearing seat elevations without the need for external bridge geometry software. PGSuper Pro's bearing seat elevation calculator builds on PGSuper's robust geometry engine to compute bearing seat elevations for all bearings in your bridge even if different types of bearings are used throughout.
