- Shrinkage primary is giving a sagging effect, but shrinkage secondary is giving hogging effect. Should they not be the same?
- For the dead load case there is an unusual level of hogging to the east pier of one beam compared to west pier of the same beam. Why is this, I expected pretty regular distribution?
- For the uniform expansion/contraction load cases, there are hogging/sagging moments. These were somewhat unexpected because the boundary conditions are such that the girders are free in the x (longitudinal) direction over both piers and the end abutment.
The model is attached for your reference.
Thank you in advance.
