Introduction to the FHWA Bridge Welding Reference Manual

Welding revolutionized steel bridges in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The move from rivets to welding facilitated the use of long, slender, and curved steel members that give engineers extraordinary flexibility in developing solutions. Welding is a mature technology, but there are aspects of welding that are not well understood and can sometimes cause unnecessary concerns in design, fabrication, inspection, and field installation. To help address these issues, the FHWA published the Bridge Welding Reference Manual, which is available online for free from the FHWA. In this webinar, the lead author of the manual provides an overview of this new manual that will be of interest to all of those in the steel bridge industry.
