How to apply temperature loads in a steel composite bridge deck having variable depth girders?


The beam section temperature could be used to assign the temperature loads.  I believe in this case you must be talking about non-linear temperature load.  
Reference could be provided from top as well as bottom.  Hence, the flare is automatically considered.  The width could also be automatically considered from section definition.
