HSLA-V Steel Non-Standard Fixed Bridge

The U.S. Army maintains bridge designs for rapid reconstruction during deployed operations. However, heavy military loads and the materials required to support these loads often limit these bridges to short spans.

Long Span Structures

Long Span Structures

An initial case study of long span structures focused on the reduction in joist member sizes which results in weight savings when high-strength low-alloy steel with vanadium (HSLA-V steel) is used.
