Finite Element Modeling and Design of Tub-Girder Bridges


Duration:60 minutes


In today’s bridge practice, finite element modeling (FEM) is becoming more popular every day. With its superior accuracy and simulation of the structural behavior, FEM is replacing the conventional methods, namely line girder and grillage analysis.   Additionally, steel tub-girder bridges are becoming more commonly used due to their advantages over other superstructure types in terms of torsional stiffness, span range, durability and aesthetics. As indicated in many resources, including National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) reports, FEM is the most appropriate method for tub-girder bridge analysis.   This webinar will cover the advantages of using FEM for steel bridges and the advantages of tub-girder bridges.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discover why FEM is superior than conventional analysis methods.
  2. Learn how modern-day FEM tools reduce design time.
  3. Find out the advantages of steel tub-girders bridges.
  4. Familiarize yourself with the key aspects of tub-girder design
