Free Bridge Webinar Part of Infrastructure Week

Infrastructure Week is around the corner, and among the many events going on during the week will include a free webinar all about short span steel bridge design.

This year Infrastructure Week is May 11-15. Infrastructure Week will bring together thousands of stakeholders to highlight the importance of investing in and modernizing American’s infrastructure systems, the week’s website says. Infrastructure Week features events in Washington, D.C., and around the country.

The free webinar is titled “Innovative, Cost-Effective Options for Short Span Steel Bridge Design.” 

The Short Span Steel Bridge Alliance is hosting the webinar, Modern Steel says, in cooperation with the American Iron and Steel Institute and Design Data partner, The American Galvanizers Association. 

 Professor Greg Michaelson of Marshall University is conducting the webinar. 

According to Modern Steel, the webinar will “present information on press-brake formed tub girder technology for short-span…bridges and how they facilitate accelerated bridge construction (ABC) while also offering an economical and competitive design solution.”  

Two projects using this new technology will be constructed this year in Iowa and West Virginia. 

The webinar will also discuss eSPAN140, a free design tool that “delivers customized preliminary short span steel bridge designs in three steps and under five minutes,” the webinar description says.  

The webinar starts at 2 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 12.
