HIGH-PERFORMANCE STEEL AND FUTURE BRIDGES IN THE U.S.

This paper summarizes some ideas for the advancement of steel bridges. These ideas are being investigated as part of a study funded by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The purpose of this study is to identify the design and construction impediments facing today's steel bridges and to study innovative structural systems for tomorrow's bridges, namely, systems that will maximize the exploitation of high-performance steel (HPS) in bridge construction.
