INTRODUCTION

It is a known fact that bridges constitute significant and critical discrete components of a transportation system and they are among the most expensive investment asset of any country’s civil infrastructure. They also have a long service life compared with most commercial products and are rarely replaceable once they are erected. This course will also incorporate both theoretical and practical sessions to give opportunity of access to international standards and benchmarks for professionals to appreciate the real-life application of the concept of bridge design, construction and maintenance. This course will provide participants with meaningful guidance to quantify their bridge infrastructure deficit and prioritize bridge investment. The course will give a broad overview of bridge management systems and maintenance strategies among other relevant contents.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Participants will benefit immensely from the programme including opportunity to:

  • Learn how to perform a conceptual design for various bridge types
  • Learn lessons on how to perform preliminary structural analysis of concrete bridges
  • Discuss Select appropriate load-bearing and support systems
  • Visit existing ongoing bridge project to appreciate the practical aspect of the programme.
  • Learn to calculate bridge loading based on relevant load models and national Codes
  • Relate to the construction of concrete bridges and how these affect the design process
  • Identify and differentiate the different types of bridges;
  • Explain the principles of bridge design;
  • Carryout planning and location for bridge construction;
  • Design and detail commonly applied bridge types;

  • Construct Maintainable Bridges
  • Bridge Management Program Approach
  • Three Components Approach

o Preservation

o Rehabilitation

o Replacement

 

BENCHMARKING COMPONENT

Benchmarking projects helps to achieve good performance as it gives opportunities to measure against best performance, using appropriate indicators such as construction cost, construction completion time, defects, client satisfaction with product and service, productivity, promotion result-oriented thinking etc

  • Participants are expected to visit any existing and/or an ongoing bridge construction to appreciate the practical aspects of bridge design and construction.

 

KEY DESIGN COMPONENTS OF THE COURSE INCLUDE:

  • Conceptual Design; Choosing the Right Type of Bridge
  • Loadings on Bridges; General Methods for Bridge Analysis
  • Design of Concrete Bridges: Beam/Slab Systems; Concrete Arches; Box Girders; etc
  • Design of Steel Bridges: Truss Bridges; Plate Girders; Box Girders etc
  • Design of Steel-Concrete Composite Bridges; Deck Systems
  • Construction Methods for Bridges

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course will of immense benefits to:

  • Bridge Engineers & Technologists,
  • Agency and Public-Sector Bridge Asset Managers,
  • Bridge Maintenance Managers,
  • Bridge Inspection Consultants.
  • Civil and Structural Engineers wishing to acquaint themselves with sound principles of bridge design and will also be beneficial to the more experienced bridge designers wishing to update themselves on latest developments in the field.
