1. Type of bridges and technology of construction. Effect of prestressing. Modelling and analysis of bridges. 2. Analysis of slab and girder bridge. 3. Analysis of box girder bridges. Method of substitute girder grillage. 4. Typical structures: flyovers, urban bridges, highway viaducts, bridges across rivers and deep valleys. 5. Special problems of design and construction of bridges built on the stationary and launch scaffolding, cantilever bridges. 6. Special problems of design and construction of incrementally launched bridges, precast girder bridges. 7. Special problems of design and construction of precast segmental bridges. 8. Analysis and special problems of design and construction of arch bridges. 9. Suspension and cable-stayed bridges. Pedestrian bridges. 10. Bridges designed for effects of the mining subsidence. Bridges designed in seismic areas.
