Design of Bridges

This studio was proposed with the main objective to enhance fundamentals, which enable the candidates to have in-depth understanding and undefined knowledge of theory and applications of various engineering aspects. This studio helped to attain desired level of proficiency required for design of bridges. The studio commenced with learning various types of bridges. Factors affecting the selection of site, material, span and system were discussed elaborately so the students can adapt a suitable configuration for the problem they are assigned. Subsequent exercises were given to the students to make them reach the final output of the studio. Apart from general discussions of the main components of the bridges, especially for super structure and sub structure, students were enlightened with the specific Indian standards. The final output of the studio was in terms of the design conceptualization, manual calculations, software model and neat structural drawings.
