Modern Bridge Construction: A Trans-Disciplinary Challenge

Engineering context

This course is run exclusively by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the internationally recognised leader in training for engineers and technical professionals.

New-generation bridge construction equipment is expensive, complex and sophisticated. The safety of workers, as well as bridge quality and durability, depend on complex interactions between human decisions; structural, mechanical and electro-hydraulic components; control systems and the bridge being erected. The risks of incorrect design assumptions and unanticipated interactions are not always evident.

In this two-day course, you’ll explore the many facets of prestressed-concrete bridges, guided by an international expert in the field of mechanised bridge construction.

Addressing the needs and questions of all those involved in a bridge’s safety, from the bridge owner to the safety planners, the course delivers professional guidance for each stage of design and construction. It also provides an opportunity to interact with other bridge professionals.
