To help with the proper entry and analysis of the bridge, BrDR will issue appropriate error messages and warning messages. Error messages explain situations that prevent the analysis engine from running. Warning messages explain situations that do not prevent the analysis engine from running but that the user should be aware of.
Error messages and warning messages are generally short and succinct, but detailed enough to explain the situations. If the error messages do not provide enough information, please send the Debug message to AASHTOWare Bridge Design & Rating Technical Support (BrDR@mbakerintl.com), and we will troubleshoot the problem. Debug messages can be found in the System Error window. Change the Message Detail type from Summary to Debug. This displays the line number and source file name associated with the problem.
