This webinar will introduce the concept of the Lean-On Bracing System, which is a method of preventing lateral torsional buckling of straight, skewed and non-skewed steel plate girder bridges. The Lean-On Bracing System mainly consists of struts that transfer forces to one or two cross-frames at each brace location. Improved structural efficiency is possible by utilizing lean-on concepts in which several girders can be braced across the width of the bridge by a single cross-frame. The benefits of lean-on bracing, research, design, owner’s perspective, and construction will also be highlighted in this webinar.
