Presentation Summary

Need help with routine and / or complex bridge load rating?

Michael Baker has helped owners nationwide develop load rating and overload permit evaluation tools for hundreds of complex bridges as well, just a few of which are shown in this graphic. Using no more than a spreadsheet on your end, but with powerful 3D FEA information in the background, overload permits for suspension, cable stay, arch, truss, rigid frame and other complex bridge types can be processed in less than a minute for many complex structures.

  3. Influence line, capacity, and load data can be incorporated into a statewide automated permit approval system
  4. How to handle special cases - severe skew with support release, LFR rating, etc.
