Design of Concrete Bridges by AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications


March 24, 2005 Holiday Inn Select, Baton Rouge, LA Course Description In this one-day course, the latest developments in the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, related to the design of concrete bridges, are discussed. The seminars emphasis is on the state-of-the-art design methods in the LRFD Specifications. They include the Modified Compression Field Theory, the Strut-and-Tie models, and a unified method of design for reinforced and prestressed concrete. The course will provide theoretical background and detailed design examples for: the design of a typical precast, prestressed concrete girder; and a two-column bent cap. Who Should Attend? Highway agency bridge designers and consulting engineers Why Attend? By October 2007, all bridges receiving federal funding must be designed by AASHTOs LFRD Bridge Design Specifications. La DOTD has begun a transition to this new design philosophy. This course will provide an understanding of the background of the LRFD concrete specifications, an overview of the state-of-the-art design procedures, and design examples. Workshop Outline
