National Steel Bridge Alliance
NSBA's mission is to establish steel as the preferred material for bridges.
The National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA), a division of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) is a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of steel bridge design and construction. The NSBA functions as the voice of the bridge fabricators and steel mills while also partnering with the bridge design and construction community. The NSBA's partners include the American Association of State Highway and Transportation (AASHTO), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), state departments of transportation (DOTs), design consultant, contractors, and academia. With these resources, NSBA is uniquely positioned to find solutions to the toughest bridge challenges, including those related to cost, sustainability and performance.
- Free publications created in collaboration with state DOTs, AASHTO and the FHWA that simplify the design process, improve the flow of information during design and construction, and reduce risk for all parties.
- Steel Bridge Forums (need descriptive phrase)
- AASHTO/NSBA Steel Bridge Collaboration meetings bi-annually that are open to the public
- Simon and ESPAN140 software that determines a bridge's structure during the type, size and location (TS&L) phase. ESPAN140 generates drawings that can be provided to a fabricator for a quick cost estimate.
- Three-span standards that will help you quickly find a design for your project
There's a variety of services available to contractors, designers and owners who want to use steel on their next project. Contact your state representative to
