About Workshop:

Bridge Design is a vital topic of study in Civil Engineering. In the Bridge Design Workshop, participants will design and
fabricate their own bridge. The bridge model made by participants can take up to 1000 times the self-weight.The
workshop includes instruction on the key structural components of Structural engineering and bridge construction –
beams, arches, trusses, suspensions, and test for maximum load.

Course Highlights

  • The program is designed to take the participants through the technical concepts involved in Civil Engineering
  • This workshop is a unique opportunity to avail hands-on experience of Civil Engineering projects.
  • Students learn about different bridges and how they work.
  • Introduction to Bridge Design through interactive lecture sessions with good multimedia content
  • Interactive practical session on CAD based Bridge Design, Fabrication and Testing
  • Bridge model is self-fabricated and tested model by each team
  • Exposure to current industry methods used in bridge design
  • Discussion about implementing the knowledge gained to develop good B.Tech/M.Tech Project

Course Structure and Topics Covered

Course Structure

  • Lecture andamp; Design: Participants would be taught various concepts involved in ‘Bridge Design’ and are made to perform CAD based analysis of their respective bridges
  • Fabrication: Each team will fabricate their own bridge according to their design with the raw material provided by us
  • Testing: This session is the most interesting part of this workshop where the participants bridge is tested for maximum load to judge the maximum efficiency of the bridge. Teams with maximum efficiency will be given Best Design Award
