Web-based Training (WBT)
$0 Per Participant
TRAINING LEVEL: Basic
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 20 Maximum: 40
NOTES:Disregard the class seat size noted in the course description for this specific course since as this is a self-paced web-based training (WBT). This course, 130081P, serves as a WBT prerequisite to the following ILTs:
This course provides training on the fundamentals for LRFD highway superstructure design. This includes a basic understanding of LRFD development and implementation, general design and location features related to superstructure design, and the primary loads and load combinations used for superstructure design. This course is a prerequisite to the Instructor-Led Training (ILT) Courses 130081 LRFD for Highway Bridge Superstructures - Steel and Concrete (4-Day ILT), 130081A LRFD for Highway Bridge Superstructures - Steel (2-Day ILT), and 130081B LRFD for Highway Bridge Superstructures - Concrete (2-Day ILT), and it covers only general sections of the LRFD Specifications.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Describe the fundamentals of LRFD, the historical background of LRFD, and the basic components of LRFD for superstructure design
Describe location features, basic design objectives, principles of bridge aesthetics, and constructability issues for superstructure design
Describe the primary loads, load combinations, and load factors used for steel and concrete superstructure design
The target audience for this course is practicing public and private sector structural and bridge engineers with 0 to 20 years of experience. This includes agency and consultant structural designers, as well as project managers. Individuals taking this course should have a minimum Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) or equivalent degree. This course is intended for engineers that require experience with AASHTO bridge design provisions and updates. Additionally, participants wishing to take 130081, 130081A, or 130081B should have taken this WBT in advance of the first day of the ILT.
