« Course Outline»


This 16 hour course (7 modules) covers the design, fabrication and construction of steel bridges based on CAN/CSA-S6-14, Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code. In addition to 4 reworked design examples, updated topics include code overview, brittle fracture, fatigue, methods of analysis, wind and seismic load effects, and aesthetics including pedestrian bridges.

The Presentation and the Course Notes include four updated design examples illustrating extensive design calculations for I-girders and box girders of straight and curved configurations. Topics include fatigue and brittle fracture, integral abutments, aesthetics, sustainability, design process and economics, highway bridge loads and methods of analysis, wind and seismic effects, fabrication and economical details, construction and erection methods.

Major changes and new provisions that were introduced in the 11th edition of CAN/CSA-S6 and their effect on the design of steel bridges are highlighted.
