CE 416 Highway Bridge Design

Students will apply prerequisite structural engineering knowledge to design components of common highway bridges in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specification. Topic coverage includes (1) structural analysis techniques for moving loads (influence lines) and distribution of traffic loads, (2) the design of superstructure components (concrete deck systems and girders of various materials [steel, concrete, and timber]), (3) the design of substructure components (reinforced concrete abutments/piers and support bearings), and (4) bridge load rating.
