TXDOT - BMCOL51 - Beam-column analysis

TXDOT - BMCOL51 - Beam-column analysis

(OP)
I just recently stumbled over an older FORTRAN program (originally from 1968,but "updated" in 2009) published by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT). It is for the generic structural analysis of continuous-span beams under various fixed and moving load conditions.

I have a basic understanding of the input and can run the program without a problem, but can not figure out how to auto-generate and view a plot of influence lines, which the program is supposedly capable of doing.

Is anyone familiar enough with BMCOL51 to give me some suggestions?

-Thanks-
