An essential introduction to the conceptual design process for bridges.

This course introduces engineers to the conceptual design process for bridges. It covers two key areas; selecting a structural form to suit the constraints of a site and arranging materials and components to meet the demands of the structure in an elegant and logical way.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should  be able to:

  • Identify how the conceptual design of a bridge is informed by physical and environmental site constraints, social, cultural and historical factors

  • Recognise the value of and use sources of inspiration

  • Read a bridge design

  • Explain basic structural systems typically used in bridges

  • Select appropriate structural forms and materials

  • Form, develop and communicate a concept

Intended for:

Engineers with little or no experience of conceptual design of bridges, those wishing to explore conceptual design of bridges from an architectural perspective, and experienced engineers wishing to refresh their conceptual design thinking.
