Description

This subject introduces students to the fundamentals of design and construction of road bridges, using a problem-based learning approach that focuses on extensive use of examples from practice and detailed case studies. Three essential themes are used to cover the course material: overview of appropriate structural forms for bridges; load and analysis models/methods for designing bridges and quantifying structural behaviour; and state-of-the-art technologies in bridge design and construction. The course material has been developed jointly by specialist bridge engineers from the Centre for Built Infrastructure Research at UTS and bridge section of the Roads and Maritime Services NSW.
