Structural Analysis and Design of Movable Bridges

COURSE NO: S02-037
Structural Analysis and Design of Movable Bridges
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on the structural analysis and design of movable bridges.


Movable bridges are designed and constructed to change their position and occasionally their shapes to permit the passage of vessels and boats in the waterway. This type of bridge is generally cost effective since the utilization of long approaches and high piers are not required. When the waterway is opened to vessels and ships, traffic over the bridge would be stopped and vice-versa.


There are different types of movable bridges and many of them are not constructed nowadays while some of them are still considered as movable bridges. Different types of movable bridges which are still desirable and applicable are also discussed in this course.  


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to civil and structural engineers, as well as other technical professionals interested in gaining a better understanding on the design of moveable bridges.
