Steel Bridges: Loads and Load Combinations
This online engineering PDH course discusses the various components of the loading of a bridge system along with its components.
AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications specifies various aspects of loads and load combinations used in bridge design. This course provides information beyond that contained in the AASHTO LRFD that will be useful to the bridge designer. It also discusses and reviews the various limit-state load combinations to assist the designer in avoiding non-governing load combinations.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to civil and structural engineers and professionals who are interested in understanding the nature of loads and load combinations used to design steel bridges.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the different load types
- Familiarizing with the reliability base design concept
- Learning about the load factors and modifiers
- Knowing the limit state combinations
