The Short Span Steel Bridge Alliance is sponsoring an educational session on the development of national design standards for short span steel bridges at the 2011 Western Bridge Engineers’ Seminar, September 25-28 in Phoenix. The session will be presented by Karl E. Barth, Ph.D., the Jack H. Samples Distinguished Professor at West Virginia University and a nationally recognized expert in steel bridge analysis, design and rating. It will be held on Tuesday, September 27 from 10:30 a.m. until noon.
SSSBA’s national standards for steel bridges are expected to be published at the end of this year. (Stay tuned for a news item on modernsteel.com once they’re available) These standards will provide bridge designers and engineers with tools to develop cost-effective short span bridges.
