The following items can be checked:

Bending Resistance
Resistance to Vertical Shear
Resistance to Lateral-Torsional Buckling
Resistance to Transverse Force
Resistance to Fatigue



Midas Civil can be used to perform design checks and load ratings as per the latest AASHTO LRFD 6th edition. Detailed design reports are generated in spread sheets for verifying with hand calculations. Design checks can be performed for strength limit state and service limit state by defining combinations from AASHTO LRFD automatically. A detailed excel report with step by step descriptions of design checks can be generated as well.
