3.5 PDHs

Photo of M P CulmoThe design of bridges that employ Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) technologies is similar to the design of bridges built using conventional means; however, there are certain differences that bridge design engineers should be aware of.  The workshop will include information on the current state of ABC in the United States including the most common technologies and details that are in use.   The focus will be in the design development process as it relates to ABC projects.  Discussion will include the design of precast concrete deck panels, modular superstructure elements, substructures, foundations, and full scale bridge installations using Self Propelled Modular Transporters and lateral sliding techniques.  The basis of the workshop will be a manual entitled 'Engineering Design, Fabrication, and Erection of Prefabricated Bridge Elements and Systems', that is under development by the Federal Highway Administration.
