Steel Bridges

Specific aspects of fundamental bridge forms, conceptual and detailed design of steel bridges are discussed in the lecture course. A more detailed consideration is given to deck structures for highway and railway bridges including orthotropic steel decks, plate girders, box girders, truss girders, as well as bridge wind-bracing systems. Composite bridges are also considered. The specific aspects of bearing systems of steel bridges are discussed together with different types of bearings, including seismic issues. Brief knowledge is given about long-span systems: frame, arch, cable-stayed and suspension bridges. Having finished the course the students will bi able to deal with structural design of steel bridges within the scope of the mentioned above.
