Bridge Design & Rehab
A practical introduction to bridge engineering, exploring the design, behavior, maintenance and rehabilitation of bridges. Bridge systems, loadings, superstructures, substructures, details, and inspections will be discussed. The theory behind development of certain provisions in AASHTO code will be reviewed, with the purpose of developing an understanding of the code and its related commentary, and the objective of preparing students to use the criteria not as a "black box." Approximate analysis methods will be discussed. Design of elements including steel and pre-stressed concrete beams, abutments, piers, joints, and bearings using AASHTO code (LRFD) will be covered.Recommendations: CEE 24 and CEE 25, or consent of instructor.
