Review of recent WisDOT in-service prestressed concrete girder
bridges that have been damaged to assess the nature of these issues.
THE death of a young father after he became trapped under a giant steel girder
was an accident waiting to happen, a court has heard.
Director Engineering Khalid Pervaiz informed the commissioner that 1100 girders

Composite action between plate girders
and concrete slab has been studied in the early eighties in respect of straight girders
One of these girders
fell from its place and knocked over the cherry picker Kenneth Joyce was riding in, throwing him some 30 feet to the ground.
The 60-metre-long rectangular steel girder
