Eugene G. Washington, P.E.
This course will discuss the design considerations of bridge falsework and the causes of failure as each element of the falsework system is discussed. The principals of falsework design apply to any temporary structural system designed to support the weight of a permanent structure during erection and until the permanent structure is self supporting. Post-tensioned box girder bridge falsework is selected for discussion because it can contain all of the complications that can result in structural failure. Bridge falsework often must span traffic, rivers and safely support massive weights in adverse conditions.
This course includes a True-False quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
