Looking to escape the winter weather this month? Why not head to Miami, where you can also catch a free bridge presentation?
“Durability of Existing & Future Steel Bridges,” is being offered by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Florida International University from 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (EST) at the school’s FIU Engineering Center.
Construction engineers and other bridge professionals will learn about the latest in fatigue design, corrosion barriers to durability and the development of orthotropic steel decks to achieve more than 100 years of service life. The lecture, presented by renowned bridge engineering expert John W. Fisher, Ph.D., professor emeritus of civil engineering at Lehigh University (and the winner of AISC’s Geerhard Haaijer Award for Excellence in Education in 2006), will also provide a brief history of the development of the fatigue design provisions currently used in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications and other specs worldwide.
Can’t get away to join in person? That’s ok, the presentation will also be offered as a live webinar.
