In this course, reinforced concrete road bridges are taken up as these bridges are mainly used in road transportation system. This course will mainly focus on reinforced concrete slab bridges spanning in the range of 8-12 m. Reinforced concrete T beam bridges will also be covered spanning in the range of 15-25 m. The course will be introduced with general design considerations, design limit states. Different loading conditions will be discussed introducing IRC codes. Behavior of concrete will also be discussed. Design of slab bridges and RC T beam bridges will be carried out in a systematic manner.
