Synopsis of the Course

(Day 1) Module 1

  • Use spreadsheet to calculate lane loading factors for particular widths of bridge decks.
  • Determine HA udl for span length.
  • Design a reinforced concrete bridge with maximum span length of 15m that can be cast on site or precast on site for HA loading.
  • Check design for limited HB loading.
  • Check for crack widths
  • Check for Additional Shear reinforcement.
  • Design Deck slab and check for crack width.
  • Design abutment as integral with bridge deck.
