(Precast or Cast-In-Place Concrete Culvert Design and Analysis)

etculvertETCulvert is a high-performance application that seamlessly combines the functionality of a state-of-the-art structural analysis engine with both fully-automatic design and analysis capabilities. Integration of the critical design tasks into one system means you get superior productivity, flexibility and improved quality control. It makes full use of current Windows technology.
Four-sided, three-sided, and V-bottom precast and cast-in-place culverts can be handled. In automatic design mode, ETCulvert quickly analyzes and designs wall thicknesses and reinforcement sizes and spacing. A comprehensive reinforcement schedule is produced, complete with all rebar and wire dimensions and bends. By switching to analysis mode, you get complete control over the design. Both AASHTO Standard and LRFD Specifications are supported.
The highly-graphical user interface provides multiple views to render the design and present the results. Complete details of the design are provided, along with detailed calculations. Powerful graphics show all rebar rendered in true 3D. Sophisticated live load capabilities include a user-customizable truck library.
