BridgeTech’s Role:

An application was developed to aid in the design and specification checking of sign truss structures designed for over-highway use. The application was modeled on the current design practice of the Kansas DOT office. A Three-dimensional structural model is generated and passed to STAAD for structural analysis. The results are used to perform simple specification checking. The entire sign truss (including the signs themselves) can be viewed in 3D using the OpenInventor visualization library.
