Synthesis of Highway Practice 345
Steel Bridge Erection Practices

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 345: Steel Bridge Erection Practices examines steel bridge erection practices for I-girder, tub-girder, and box-girder bridges; particularly curved, skewed, and staged structures.  The report focuses on the impact of design and analysis practices on erection; methods used to predict erection deflections as a function of bridge type and complexity; shop-assembly practices and alternate methods of ensuring properly assembled geometry; stability issues; field connection practices; examples of structures in which erection practices have caused problems; owner requirements for erection procedures, implementation of requirements, and the impact of procedures on the quality of erection; and current and proposed research.  This topic is published at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=5052
