Bridge engineering has continued to evolve as increasing knowledge of material properties, structural behavior, and the environment change methods of design and construction. In this course, the basic principle and theory of designing short span steel bridges based on AASHTO Load Factor Design method are introduced. An example of steel bridge girder design utilizing this LFD method is also presented. This course focuses on the design issues related to the safety, the serviceability and the constructibility of steel bridges, and is intended for practice engineers and engineering students with basic knowledge of steel structures. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
