Description

For major span bridges, steel is the first choice because of its superior strength-to-weight ratio which not only allows longer spans, but also lower overall costs. This session will present two case studies in the use of steel for tied arches where careful planning and consideration early on resulted in more economical and durable structures

2:30 p.m. | Making Gains in the Short-Span Market

Description

The short-span bridge market, up to 140-ft span, is a very competitive place to do business, with several material alternatives available to bridge owners. The Folded Steel Plate Girder System (FSPG) is a new approach which is already making gains in states like Pennsylvania. This session will look at the recent developments and future enhancements to this new short span solution in steel.

2:30 p.m. | Research and Application of Steel Orthotropic Bridge Decks

Description

Prefabricated modular steel orthotropic decks can provide lifecycle cost-effective solution for steel bridges. These decks are ideal for accelerated bridge construction and is the only deck system likely to ensure a service life exceeding 100 years with minimum maintenance. This session will present an overview of steel orthotropic decks, lessons learned from service performance and research. Additionally, an overview of the fabrication and construction of the new Wittpenn Bridge will be presented.

3:45 p.m. | Challenging Projects and Mitigating Risk

SPEAKERS: Keith Griesing, PE, Hardesty & Hanover; Stephanie Brandenberger, MDT Bridge Bureau; Dustin Hirose, PE, HDR; Tony Hunley, SE, PE, PhD, and Taylor Perkins, PE, Stantec Consulting Services Inc.

Often during the course of project specific constraints and risks present themselves that requrie special attention from a design and risk-assessment perspective. This session will address a bascule bridge in a seismic region, a particularly challenging navigational clearance in KY, as well as uncertainties related to the replacement of two bridges in MT over the Montana Rail Link station.

3:45 p.m. | Stainless Steel use in Bridges— A Solution for Long-Term Service and Durability

SPEAKERS: Isaac Groshek, AECOM; Jason Provines, PE, Virginia DOT; Juan A. Sobrino, PE, PEng, PhD, PEDELTA

With limited budgets and resources for maintenance, bridge owners a continually looking to extend the useful life out of their assets. This session presents the latest developments and research in the design of steel bridges and steel components for long-term service life and durability—specifically in the use of Grade 50CR and stainless steels.

5:30 p.m. | Pedestrian Bridges— Invigorate Design Creativity

SPEAKERS: Patrick Gallagher, Parsons; Terri Meyer Boake, LEED AP, University of Waterloo

Designing a bridge for “people only” seems to invigorate design creativity. However, along with this opportunity comes the challenge to deliver a project that meets public expectation. This session will provide some insight into how two projects do just that.

5:30 p.m. | Reducing Errors in Bridge Drawings—What You Can do Today and Look to in the Future

SPEAKERS: Brad Dillman, PE, High Steel Structures; Aaron Costin, PhD, University of Florida; Jason Stith, PE, PhD, Michael Baker International

As project delivery methods continue to change and evolve and as project delivery schedules continue to accelerate, clear communication of design intent and design requirements in contract documents becomes increasingly important. This session will offer some insight into the common design issues facing steel bridge fabricators that can lead to questions or delays in the structural steel delivery process. Additionally, this session will present the initial steps towards digital interoperability (BrIM) who's end goal is to improve communication and reduce errors.
