A grillage analysis for 4 main beams supported on pinned or rotational springs over 2 spans using a stiffness matrix based on 3 degrees of freedom at each joint – vertical deflection and 2 rotations. Loading is by joint forces or moments in 2 directions. Optional support conditions allow integral bridge decks and ‘ladder’ type bridges (2 main beams) to be analysed. Differential settlement can be modelled as required.
