The INSTRUCT Program Help File

You can also find this help manual by clicking “Help” in the INSTRUCT 1.1 program. The intent of this manual is to 1) provide users the analytical background of the pushover analysis for both DOS and Windows-based INSTRUCT, 2) provide instruction for the preparation of input data, and 3) provide guidance in the interpretation of output data from the Windows-based INSTRUCT. For bridge bents other than the typical bents mentioned above, the comprehensive DOS version of INSTRUCT can be used to perform the pushover analysis (Not included in this package).

If you have any questions on the program installation or further comments, Please contact Dr. W. Phillip Yen at wen-huei.yen@dot.gov .
