Purpose of the Webinar
This presentation focused on the load rating of a 17 span steel composite girder bridge which carries I-95 over Metro North Railroad and local roads in Stamford, CT. midas Civil was used for the live load analysis and load rating primarily due to the complex span configuration/geometry of the bridge. In addition, midas Civil was used to investigate the causes of concrete deck pumping under live load along a diagonal expansion joint.
