Bridge Engineering

Our engineers have extensive experience in various bridge projects in Australia and overseas, some of the projects cover composite girder bridges, steel truss bridges, prestressed precast girder bridges, post tensioned precast box girder bridges, arch composite bridges, and stay cable bridges

We provide design engineering and construction services, including:

  • Conceptual design
  • Design optimisation and alternatives
  • Design engineering and detailing
  • Project engineering and project management
  • Bridge work platform design for precast segmental bridge construction
  • Construction method, supervision, and quality assurance, including span by span erection method for precast girders and precast segmental bridge construction.

RC Engineering has strong commitment with the project quality and effective construction cost. We are continuously developing our engineers by providing technical training and supervision from senior engineers to the intermediate and junior engineers.

Simple Bridge Design Packages

We have commitment to support the community in suburbs and rural area by creating simple bridge design packages for non-highway traffic short-span to medium-span bridges, and post disaster short-span to medium-span bridges. The simple bridge design packages allow the construction process can be simple, shorter, and cost efficient. The span length range and type of the bridges are:

  • 5 meters span steel composite bridge
  • 10 meters span steel composite bridge
  • 10 meters span steel truss bridge
  • 15 meters span steel composite bridge
  • 15 meters span steel truss bridge

The bridge span superstructures are typical design for every option, and the abutment design will be based on the area, ground bearing capacity, and geographic condition. The traffic lane numbers can be ordered in one or two lanes options

Our Bridge Design Software

We are using high end computer finite element software in our design engineering:

  • SAP2000 finite element
  • Spacegass
  • LEAP Bridge

Each bridge is a unique structure

The method of construction normally goes hand in hand with bridge design and both depend upon many factors and constraints. These include – but are not limited to – economy of construction, availability and cost of local resources, environmental issues (such as traffic and protected areas), the geography of the landscape (including valleys on land or the depth of the sea bed for marine structures), the ground bearing capacity and quality, and other design requirements such as geometry, loadings and planned service life. As such, every bridge is indeed a prototype, and its shape and layout result from the careful consideration of all these factors.
