PCI eLearning Course T455: Bridge Bearings — Bearing Design
The more computationally intensive Method B of the LRFD Specifications for the design of bearing pads, applies only to steel reinforced elastomeric bearings. It generally results in higher capacities but the bearings that result from its use require more rigorous testing. This course explores the application of Method B including a design example and compares the results of the two methods.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
  • Identify cases when Method B should be used
  • Design a bearing pad using Method B of the AASHTO LRFD Specifications
