Abstract:

High-performance steel (HPS) offers improved toughness and durability for bridge construction. This article presents several innovative concepts for HPS structural systems—including I-girders with corrugated webs and built-up girders with tubular flanges filled with concrete. These systems could help translate HPS's potential advantages into reality.
