Bridge Engineering encompass a vast array of critically important technical subdisciplines, from structural bridge inspection & evaluations, to load rating, tunnel inspection, and bridge design. As the demand for cost effective and timely solutions increases to meet infrastructure needs, the importance for all stakeholders to understand the latest techniques and technologies continues to be a top priority. The following courses compiled by AI University builds on AI’s 27 years of excellence in bridge engineering to help engineers, owners, and non-technical A/E/C professionals to better understand basic bridge engineering concepts as well as learn about new advances in the field.

What is Load Rating?

AI's Damian Silverstrim, PE explains what it means to load rate bridges and structures.

Fundamentals of Bridge Design

This course covers fundamental concepts and methods in bridge design. Starting with the very basics, we consider definition of the bridge, different types and what is the statically system of each type of bridges. We then move on to look at bridge components ; what are they and how the loads transfer through them? We'll cover the different types of  design codes and the different types of loads in detail. Worked examples are used extensively to demonstrate the practical application of theory.

Fundamentals of Structural Analysis

This course covers fundamental concepts and methods in static structural analysis. Starting with the very basics, we consider forces, moments and how to use the principle of static equilibrium. We then move on to look at pin-jointed structures or trusses; what are they and how do we analyse them? We'll cover the joint resolution method and method of sections in detail. Worked examples are used extensively to demonstrate the practical application of theory.
