Design of Bridges

In this Studio work, each individual was provided with a particular type of superstructure, substructure and foundation type as well as certain geometric data based on which it was required to design the bridge structure. The work done by me comprises of the design of Bridge having RCC Voided Slab with Elastomeric Bearing resting on Rectangular Pier supported on Pile Foundation. All the elements of superstructure, substructure and foundation were analyzed, designed and detailed according to relevant standard codes and literature.
