Composite Girder Design (Constructability Check)

Question:

Hi,

I'm designing a Composite steel girder bridge, I wonder how can I add a wind load as a lateral bending stress in a Constructability check? I can see stress due to steel weight and overhang loads. (I'm using case 3 methodology so I did not define the construction staging)

My second question is I cannot see the excel report for bearing stiffeners. I can see the design report table but not the excel report.

I have attached my model for your consideration.

Thanks,

Hello,

Sorry about the delay on this.  We have a response from the development team.
To incorporate wind load in constructability:
1)  Add the relevant wind load case to pre-composite loads
2)  Add the load case to the relevant load combinations and perform the design.
