Non-linear Temperature Gradients Action in Sofistik

According to Eurocode and AASHATO code, non-linear temperature gradients between the bottom and the top of the bridge deck need to be considered in design.

In Sap2000 / CSiBridge, Midas Civil, Lusas, Larsa 4D and other bridge design softwares, the above mentioned temperature action can be easily implemented using beam elements.

How to do such analysis using beam elements in Sofistik?
Any example or tutorial?


We have a verification example about non-linear temperature gradients. You can find the example and the description (pdf) on our website or within the TEDDY. > Infocenter - Overview > Documentation - Tutorials > verification benchmarks > BE54 Equivalent Linear Temperature Load
