The Department of Civil Engineering has organized a guest lecture on an aspect of Bridge Engineering. On 2nd of Jestha, 2080, Engineer Shakil Manandhar delivered a captivating guest lecture to BE Civil 4th semester 2077 Batch students, focused on the practical application of Influence Line Diagrams (ILDs) in bridge design.
Er. Shakil Manandhar, the Team Leader of Local Road Bridge Support Unit (LRBSU) explained on the necessity to understand ILDs and their significance in bridge design. His presentation shed light on theoretical concepts with real-world examples.
The lecture began with an introduction to Influence Line Diagrams, explaining their purpose as visual tools used to determine the maximum effects on structural elements of a bridge, such as shear forces and bending moments. Er. Manandhar emphasized the importance of ILDs in accurately assessing the bridge's performance under different loading conditions. He highlighted the significance of ILDs in optimizing bridge designs for maximum safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
