SSSBA Publishes Research for New Steel Tub Girder Bridge Technology

The results of the extensive research on the development and experimental testing of bridge systems are in!

The Short Span Steel Bridge Alliance (SSSBA) new report on the “Development and Experimental Testing of Press-Brake-Formed Steel Tub Girders for Short Span Bridge Applications” reveals new technology that allows for accelerated construction and reduced traffic interruptions.

The five volumes compiled by Karl Barth, PhD and Greg Michaelson, PhD, PE can be downloaded for free here.

  • Volume I – “Development and Feasibility Assessment of Shallow Press-Brake-Formed Steel Tub Girders for Short Span Bridge Applications”
  • Volume II – “Experimental Evaluation of Non-Composite Shallow Press-Brake-Formed Steel Tub Girders”
  • Volume III – “Evaluation of Modular Press-Brake-Formed Tub Girders With UHPC Joints”
  • Volume IV – “Field Performance Assessment of Press-Brake-Formed Steel Tub Girder Superstructures”
  • Volume V – “Fatigue Performance of Uncoated and Galvanized Composite Press-Brake-Formed Tub Girders”
