PCI eLearning Course T353: Curved Bridge U-Girders-Modeling, Analysis, and Design
The second course uses a prototype bridge to develop an understanding of the methodologies and techniques used to model, analyze, and design curved, spliced precast concrete U-Beam bridges. Two submodules will be presented as follows:

1. Assumptions and techniques to develop a structural model to analyze the bridge.
2. Critical items for design during temporary phases of construction and in the permanent condition.

After completing this course, the student will be able to understand:

  • Modeling and analysis of curved spliced precast concrete U-Beam bridges
    • Development of Model
    • Staged construction
    • Time Dependent Effects
  • Superposition of stage forces and stresses
  • Structural behavior and deformations
  • Basics of plan preparation and deliverables
