An ESWP Program Committee Webinar – Steel Bridges
September 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Steel Bridges in the 21st Century
Steel bridges have been designed, fabricated, and constructed for over 100 years, with many centurion steel bridges still in-service today! However, the steel bridges we design and fabricate today are not your parents, your grandparents, or even your great-grandparents bridges. This presentation will address both historic trends, as well as recent innovations and developments in the steel bridge industry, touching on available resources, materials, and design advancements that may be a benefit to you on your next steel bridge project.
