The National Highway Institute's (NHI) one-day Cable-Stayed Signature Bridge Seminar is intended to provide participants with an introduction to planning, design, and construction of long-span, cable-stayed bridges. The seminar provides an overview of the features of cable-stayed bridges; their construction and maintenance considerations; and analyses needed to design these highly redundant structures including special aerodynamic studies.
This seminar will engage participants through Instructor-led presentations, discussions, Q&A, group activities, and walkthrough examples. Participants will review a case study to help them understand how the curriculum can be applied to making basic design decisions. Major topics covered include: bridge configurations, construction methodology, component details, analysis, aerodynamics, design methodology, construction engineering, and maintenance and inspection. As part of the seminar, participants will receive a copy of FHWA Design Guidelines for the Arch and Cable-Supported Signature Bridges.
As a result of the seminar, participants will become familiar with the features of, construction and maintenance considerations; and analyses needed to design cable-stayed bridges.
The primary target audience includes bridge engineers with 10 to 30 years of expericence.
