New templates of bridge diaphragms

This article is also available in:
Thanks to our new templates implemented in IDEA StatiCa Detail version 10.0, you can now create commonly used bridge diaphragms in a much faster way.

You can use 4 new topologies of bridge diaphragms – box girder diaphragm, multi-cell box girder diaphragm, indirectly supported double tee bridge or directly supported double tee bridge. These templates contain loads in the form of shear and torsion from the permanent and variable load cases, which are transferred through the walls of the box girder cross-section.

You can also edit the geometry of the member, define opening, rebars, etc.

As for any other member, you can run all necessary analyses and code-checks at the end.
