COURSE TITLE: Bridge Inspection: Abutments and Wingwalls (BIRM)
COURSE NO: S02-007
Bridge Inspection: Abutments and Wingwalls (BIRM)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course is based on BIRM's Section 10.1, Abutments and Wingwalls. The course defines various abutment types: full height, open, integral, and some less common types. Typical materials used, abutment elements, and foundation types are described.  Inspection procedures for identifying vertical, lateral, and rotational movement are presented, as well as for identifying material defects and scour. Geometrical and construction-based classifications of wingwalls are given, and inspection procedures for wingwalls are listed that are similar to the procedures for abutments.

 

The Federal Highway Administrations' Bridge Inspector's Reference Manual (BIRM) is a comprehensive manual on programs, procedures, and techniques for inspecting and evaluating a variety of in-service highway bridges.  BIRM serves as the basis of a comprehensive National Highway Institute training program in bridge-safety inspection.

COURSE TITLE: Bridge Mechanics (BIRM)
COURSE NO: S03-006
Bridge Mechanics (BIRM)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the basic principles of bridge mechanics which is the branch of physical science that deals with energy and forces and their relation to the equilibrium, deformation, or motion of bodies. The engineer or bridge inspector will primarily be concerned with statics or the branch of mechanics dealing with solid bodies at rest and with forces in equilibrium. The two most important reasons for the engineer or bridge inspector to study bridge mechanics are to understand how bridge members function and to recognize the impact a defect may have on the load-carrying capacity of a bridge component or element.
