There are 4 modules in this course

This module equips you with the knowledge to create safe and durable bridge superstructure. We'll explore design philosophies, from the traditional working stress method to the modern limit state method as specified by IRC codes. You'll learn about material properties, how to account for prestressing losses, and design for various load scenarios. We'll delve into controlling deformations and ensuring the bridge functions well under everyday use. Prestressed concrete systems, cable placement strategies, and proper detailing techniques will be covered. By the end, you'll be empowered to design concrete bridge superstructures that are structurally safe and sound.

Master the design of beam and slab bridge superstructures with this in-depth module! We'll guide you through a step-by-step process, from idealizing the bridge deck as a grillage system to analyzing and designing its components. You'll learn how to calculate effective section properties and apply loads accurately, considering impact factor and congestion factor. We'll delve into both ultimate and serviceability limit state design, ensuring the bridge can withstand various loads while functioning well. Transverse analysis techniques and special considerations for skewed or curved bridges will also be covered. By the end, you'll be equipped to confidently analyze and design beam and slab type bridge superstructures that are both safe and efficient.
