Welcome to the Orthotropic Bridge Home page. Recognizing this is a specialized area of bridge engineering, we at the Sacramento Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) are sponsoring the Orthotropic Bridge conferences so all engineers around the world can share their ideas, insights and projects.
In 2004 and 2008, and 2013, we conducted the first and second and third Orthotropic Bridge Conferences. Those were pioneering efforts by California bridge engineers passionate about the application and future development of Orthotropic configuration for bridges. They recognized the value of offering others professionals in their field the opportunity to join and share their knowledge and experience. The 2004, 2008, and 2013 conferences attracted many notable bridge engineers from across the USA and more than 11 countries and were well received.
In 2015, the American Society of Civil Engineers has compiled all of the 2004, 2008, and 2013 proceedings materials onto a single CD. Each one sells for $300 USA dollars. Please download the current order form to purchase. Thanks!
We are pleased to move the 2015 Orthotropic Conference outside of the USA. We are very pleased to be partnering with China Bridge Magazine for the 4th conference. Please click on the icon to be redirected to the web page(s) for more details. Thanks!
