SPR-4431: A New Approach to Accelerated Fabrication of Steel Bridges: Design, Optimization, and Demonstration

This project will develop and demonstrate a new approach to the accelerated fabrication of resilient steel bridges. Research objectives include: (1) Design and build a simply-supported and a multi-span continuous demonstration bridge; (2) Measure the dead and live load strains of the demonstration bridges as experimental evidence demonstrating behavior; and (3) Develop and optimize a kit-of-parts system to facilitate adoption.
