The National Steel Bridge Alliance is offering a five-day course, presented by the National Highway Institute, on LRFD Analysis and Design of Skewed and Horizontally Curved Steel Highway Bridges October 22-26 at the University of Richmond, Va.
Led by Michael Grubb of Grubb & Associates, Inc., and John Yadlosky of HDR, Inc., the course applies the principles of LRFD to the analysis and design of skewed and horizontally curved steel highway bridges. It provides a combination of discussions and workshop exercises focusing primarily on skewed and horizontally curved steel I-girder bridges, and the accompanying Reference Manual also includes design examples for horizontally curved steel box-girder bridges. For structural applications, the curriculum follows the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design specifications, 5th Edition, 2010 (AASHTO LRFD Specifications).
Upon completion of the course, participants will receive 31 PDHs/3.1 CEUs and be able to:
- Describe the bridge superstructure analysis, design, fabrication and construction process for skewed or horizontally curved steel I-girder superstructures and for horizontally curved steel box-girder superstructures in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Specifications
- Illustrate the application of the AASHTO LRFD Specifications to the analysis and design process for skewed and curved steel-bridge superstructures, taking into account erection and construction considerations
- Demonstrate understanding of analysis and design specification requirements for skewed and curved steel girder bridges through the completion of participant exercises and guided walkthroughs and the review of design examples
