Bridge-Design: variable Reinforcement

While re analysing existing bridges it is of great interest to define a variable reinforcement along the bridge axis. With the latest program version 2012 and the CABD concept this is at the moment not yet possible.

But there is a trick in combination with the latest development inside the program AQB. Using a dummy structure line you will be able to define variable reinforcement. Based on a very simple example this sofinar explains the basic workflow.

Please note this SOFinar is in GERMAN LANGUAGE!
