DCALC's bridge design programs are capable of
performing calculations using both the AASHTO Standard
Specifications and the new AASHTO LRFD Bridge Specifications.
DCALC's LRFD bridge design programs have been verified with the
following published results:
The above design examples are excellent resources for learning
how to design using the new LRFD specification.
DCALC's output compares very closely with most of the
above publish results, with some exceptions due to certain different
approaches. You can download PDF files showing comparisons by
