This document presents the user's manual for two computer programs for the nonlinear analysis of highway bridges subjected to horizontal forces. The programs are called ISADAB and SIBA. The former was developed in FORTRAN IV on a CYBER 730 mainframe and performs a variety of tasks ranging from static to earthquake analysis of bridges. The latter consists of a package of three programs which were developed in BASIC on a Commodore 64. The SIBA package is for only static nonlinear analysis of bridges and for the related graphical displays (Abstract by authors).
