DESCUS II BEST Center The program models the bridge structure as a two-dimensional grid in a stiffness format with three degrees-of-freedom at each nodal point (correspoding to torsion, shear, and bending moment). The computer program DESCUS II will perform the complete analysis of a. The program can use either the Working Stress Design WSD method, the Load. based on AASHTO Guide Specifications of Working Stress Design and Load.
