Sheikh Ibrahim, Ph.D., P.E.16.AbstractThis document consists of a comprehensive steel girder bridge design example, with instructional commentary based onthe AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (Second Edition, 1998, including interims for 1999 through 2002). Thedesign example and commentary are intended to serve as a guide to aid bridge design engineers with the implementationof the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, and is offered in both US Customary Units and StandardInternational Units.This project includes a detailed outline and a series of flowcharts that serve as the basis for the design example. Thedesign example includes detailed design computations for the following bridge features: concrete deck, steel plate girder,bolted field splice, shear connectors, bearing stiffeners, welded connections, elastomeric bearing, cantilever abutment andwingwall, hammerhead pier, and pile foundations. To make this reference user-friendly, the numbers and titles of thedesign steps are consistent between the detailed outline, the flowcharts, and the design example.In addition to design computations, the design example also includes many tables and figures to illustrate the variousdesign procedures and many AASHTO references. AASHTO references are presented in a dedicated column in the rightmargin of each page, immediately adjacent to the corresponding design procedure. The design example also includescommentary to explain the design logic in a user-friendly way. Additionally, tip boxes are used throughout the designexample computations to present useful information, common practices, and rules of thumb for the bridge designer. Tipsdo not explain what must be done based on the design specifications; rather, they present suggested alternatives for thedesigner to consider. A figure is generally provided at the end of each design step, summarizing the design results for thatparticular bridge element.The analysis that served as the basis for this design example was performed using the AASHTO Opis software. A sampleinput file and selected excerpts from the corresponding output file are included in this document.17.Key Words18.Bridge Design, Steel Girder, Load and Resistance FactorDesign, LRFD, Concrete Deck, Bolted Field Splice,Hammerhead Pier, Cantilever Abutment, Wingwall, PileFoundation19.Security Classif.
