FOURTH NATIONAL WORKSHOP ON BRIDGE RESEARCH IN PROGRESS:
 
RESEARCH ABSTRACT
 
Title:
Structural Systems for High Performance Steel Bridges
Author(s) and Affiliation(s):
John M. Kulicki, Wagdy G. Wassef and Philip A. Ritchie Modjeski and Masters, Inc. Harrisburg, PA
 
 
Principal Investigator:
John M. Kulicki
Sponsor(s):
Federal Highway Administration
Research Start Date:
Summer 1993
Expected Completion Date:
Summer 1996
Research Objectives:
The objectives of this project are to identify the design and construction impediments facing today's steel bridges, to solicit new ideas for tomorrow's bridges, namely, ideas that will maximize the exploitation of high performance steel in bridge construction and to evaluate the potential of the suggested innovative systems.
Expected Products or Deliverables:
The expected products of this project include a report that includes compilations of the impediments to the use of steel bridges and the recommendations of all groups involved in bridge construction to eliminate or minimize these impediments. The report will also include comparisons between bridges designed using conventional systems and innovative systems.
