Course Description

Design Steel Bridge Superstructures using LRFD, Part 2.

This course gives a brief introduction to LRFD application to the design of Highway Bridge Superstructures. It will shed some light on the design philosophy of LRFD. It will show the Design truck loading and lane loading used for the design of the Superstructure. It will consider both concrete girder bridges and steel bridges. This course presents the theory, methodology, and application for the design and analysis of both steel and concrete highway bridge superstructures.  The manual is based on the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, Seventh Edition, 2014, with Interim Revisions through 2015.  Design examples and commentary throughout the manual are intended to serve as a guide to aid bridge engineers with the implementation of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design
