Description

Design Module 5 illustrates the design of horizontally curved, continuous multi-span steel bridges. This module includes detailed calculations of a 3-span plate girder bridge and a 2-span box girder bridge, which are featured in the CISC course on Steel Bridges – Design, Fabrication, Construction as Design Examples 3 and 4. Structural design aspects covered in the examples include composite section properties, torsional stresses, erection procedure, slab casting sequence, moment resistance before and after composite action, shear resistance, cross-frame forces, centrifugal forces, superstructure vibrations and fatigue. DM5 is based on CSA Standard S6-14, Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code. Structural steel plates conform to CSA G40.21 grades 350A and 350AT.
