COURSE NO: S02-030
COURSE PROVIDER: Donald Parnell, P.E.
Steel Bridges: Fabricating the Structure
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course explains the basic concepts of fabricating steel bridge structures and serves as a reference document to facilitate the communication between the fabricator and engineer.


Fabrication industry is constantly evolving as the steel structures are becoming stronger and more complex. The methods employed in the fabrication of a bridge structure will be as variable as the structure itself, with each fabricator utilizing their own means and methods for solving the problems associated with each structure.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil and structural engineers and professionals who are interested in learning more about the concept of steel bridge fabrication, assembly and materials.
