Introduction to Steel Bridge Design Session L2

Plate Girder Design and Stability

This session will focus on the design and behavior of plate girders in steel bridges. Methods of preliminary sizing of the girders will be discussed along with an overview of the strength evaluation of composite girders. The AASHTO strength provisions for the evaluation of member and system stability will be covered. Member and system stability topics will include the evaluation of local buckling, lateral torsional buckling, as well as system buckling of narrow steel bridge systems. The principles will be supported through design examples.

This presentation is part of the Introduction to Steel Bridge Design webinar series.
