Bridge Design - Concrete Columns

Bridge Design – Concrete Columns

Columns are structural elements that support the superstructure, transfer vertical loads from superstructure to foundation, and resist the lateral loads acting on the bridge due to seismic and various service loads. This course presents an overview of concrete column design. It discusses design loads and design criteria including the three limit states and forces. This course reviews the moment magnification method, the column flexural design procedure, the column shear design procedure, and the column seismic design procedure.
