Resilient Bridge Design
June 21, 2012, 2:30–4 p.m. (eastern daylight time)
This Webinar is based on a new FHWA publication, Framework for Improving Resilience of Bridge Design. The publication draws on lessons from past bridge failures to improve the resilience of bridge designs by using the "fault-tree analysis" methodology to identify potential events that could lead to a bridge failure. Designs that prevent such failures are then discussed. Examples of a fault-tree analysis for both concrete and steel bridges will be featured during the session. The Webinar is hosted by NHI, in conjunction with the FHWA Highways for LIFE program.
