BridgeSight is Proud to Introduce PGSuper Professional!
Come see us in Booth #103 at the 2012 PCI Convention and National Bridge Conference this weekend (9/29-10/02) in Nashville, TN. We're there to discuss PGSuper and give away some free stuff!
Version 2.6 of PGSuper was released last week. This release includes several updates and some usefule new features, such as
- Support for AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, 6th Edition 2012
- Support for extended prestressing strands
- Options for negative moment calculations
- Updated engineering calculations
Check out the new features in our tutorial paper at: http://www.pgsuper.com/drupal/TrainingHome
News Release - December 1, 2011 - BridgeSight Software signs contract with the Kansas Department of Transportation Bridge Division to customize the open source girder design program PGSuper to fit KDOT's needs for LRFD precast/prestressed girder design. When completed, KDOT will have a custom girder design program that is tailored to meet their needs at a fraction of the cost to develop software from scratch.
WSDOT posted PGSuper Version 2.5 yesterday. It can be downloaded from

Enhancements made in PGSuper Version 2.4 include support for modeling lightweight concrete. Engineers can now define both the girder and deck concrete as normal weight, sand lightweight, or all lightweight concrete. This new tutorial describes how to model lightweight concrete material properties in PGSuper.
