LRFD Design of Common Bridge Elements: Decks and Bearings
Web-based Training (WBT)
$25 Per Participant
This course provides training to explain the design considerations for decks and bearings. It provides a summary of general deck design procedures, including an introduction to different types of bridge bearings, and provides specific design steps for the design of elastomeric bearings and High-Load Multi-Rotational Bearings (HLMRBs).
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Summarize deck design procedures, including the strip width and empirical design methods, and deck overhang design
Identify different types of bridge bearings and their primary applications
Identify elastomeric bearing components and list the steps required for their design
Identify High-Load Multi-Rotational Bearing (or HLMRB) components and list the steps required for their 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 these courses 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.
