When talking about refined analysis, most engineers might think of using it for complex bridges and bridges that are beyond the range of applicability of the AASHTO LRFD formulas. While many favor a general philosophy of keeping the analyses simple to minimize errors, or to remain true to the accepted, proven engineering practices, it might come at a cost. Dr. Yanling Leng, lead bridge engineer from IMEG, will talk about why and how she has conducted refined analyses for the optimum design & load rating of normal local bridges. 

  • Why Do Local Bridges Need Refined Analysis?

    • The Characteristic of Local Bridges
    • Challenges for Local Bridges
    • The Levels of Bridge Assessment
  • Why Conducting Refined Analysis Using Midas Civil

    • Live Load Analysis
    • Construction Stage Analysis
  • Case Study

    • Design for Precast, Prestressed Concrete Girder Bridge Made Continuous 
    • Inversion Analysis for the Retrofit Design of a Composite Steel Girder Bridge
    • Refined Load Ratings for Local Bridges
  • Q&A Session
