As special as movable bridges are, learning techniques from experts could help you have a broader view and more insight of your project. So we want to invite you to our live webinar with Dr. Liang.



Key Points

  • 3D FE modeling of movable swing bridge using shell element
  • 3D FE modeling of concrete slab bridge using solid element
  • Load test the existing bridge and compare field measurements to FEA results
  • Adjust load rating results based on FEM and load test to remove bridge posting
