This course covers design of new bridges and evaluation of existing bridges in accordance with current AASHTO specifications. The procedures and requirements of bridge design and evaluation will be discussed, and the corresponding AASHTO code provisions will be explained through examples. Main topics include overview and history of bridge engineering, bridge design and evaluation methods and procedures, bridge superstructure design, bridge substructure design, fatigue and fracture of steel bridges, bridge load rating, advanced methods and technologies for bridge condition assessment, and case studies.
