A girder bridge is the most common type in bridge design. Prestressing a composite girder in the negative moment region increases its stiffness by preventing the cracking of concrete under service loads. In this session, Ir. Chong Wee Lin from Jurutera Bintangh Senari PLT (Malaysia) will share his design practices of girder span bridges in Sarawak.
We highly recommend this course to any engineers all around the world who practices girder bridge on a daily basis. Come and join us live. Our speaker will be there to answer your questions.

Things to keep when designing a girder span bridge
How to facilitate the modeling and analysis of girder span bridge using midas Civil.
BD3701 Traffic loading explanation and application in midas Civil.
Question & Answer
Key Point 1: Design Consideration of Girder Span Bridge
While designing a bridge, structural engineers often make numerous decisions that critically affects the project. Ir. Chong Wee Lin will share what he considers in the girder span bridge project based on his past experience.
Key Point 2: Facilitate Bridge Modeling
Setting up an analytical model are a very time-consuming and tedious work. Often, it requires a deep understanding of finite element methods. The speaker reveals you how to shorten the whole design process by building the analytical model in a faster and easier way.
Key Point 3: Traffic Live Load Application
Traffic load falls under the category of static analysis, but requires additional knowledge. In order to apply it in practice, you need to know how to deal with various factors. He will share how traffic load can be applied under different conditions.
