Structural Irregularity and Geometric Complexity

 

 

 

 

 

The purpose of this training is to address how model a complex structure with unconventional bridge structures, geometric irregularities and complex construction sequences.

Download Model Files
The geometric irregularities include tapered (varying depth) girders, flared ends and bridge splits. Regarding the complex construction sequences, a rehabilitation project will be discussed as an example project.

Project Information
Steel Composite I Girder Bridge
Construction Type: Rehabilitation
Remarks: varying bridge width, additional girder line joining

 

Discussion Overview
1. Steel Composite I Girder Bridge Rehabilitation example
• Manual modeling approach
- CAD import and other manual modeling functions
- How to manage tedious link modeling
• Construction Stage Set up for rehabilitation project
- Flexible CS set up for rehab projects
• Moving load analysis
- Moving load analysis for the varying deck width

Project Information
Prestressed concrete I Girder Bridge
Construction Type: New construction
Remarks: Girder in transverse direction, parts of girders uncovered with the bridge deck


Discussion Overview
2. Prestressed Concrete I Girder Bridge example
• Manual Modeling
- CAD import and other manual modeling functions
- Deck lies in the transverse direction
• Construction Stage Set up for the non-uniform deck pouring
- How to distinguish/differentiate non-composite & composite parts
• Moving Load Analysis
- How to run moving load for the project with the transverse girders
- How to run moving load analysis during the rehab construction

Please note that the PDH credit will not be provided for attending this course.
