About the Speakers


Rod Beadle - Executive Director of Engineers in Action
Rod Beadle is the Executive Director of Engineers in Action, an international nonprofit organization that partners with communities in Bolivia, Ecuador, and Eswatini and student and professional volunteers to design and construct footbridges, water systems, and other critical infrastructure. He is a civil engineer with over 35 years of experience in the design and construction of transportation and infrastructure facilities. Rod has also served extensively as an engineer on international development and disaster response operations throughout the developing world. 

EIA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that partners with communities and volunteer groups to develop clean water and infrastructure solutions to impoverished, rural areas in Latin America and Africa. In 2018, EIA took over the University Bridge Program from another nonprofit organization, Bridges to Prosperity. EIA’s Bridge Program includes active chapters from 17 universities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. In 2019, our chapters are planning to construct six suspended pedestrian bridges in Boliva and two in eSwatini (formerly Swaziland). 
Rod will talk about how EIA’s Bridge Program has been designed and implemented to ensure that most projects are designed and constructed within a year and how community participation in paying for materials and providing construction labor has led to a greater sense of ownership and participation. He will also describe technical details of how the bridges are designed and built in remote, isolated conditions and describe how pedestrian bridges can dramatically improve the health and economic wellbeing of the communities where we serve. Visit our Bridge Program for more information.

Restoration of the Historic Franklin Avenue Bridge
The historic Franklin Avenue Bridge, built in 1923, is a 1050-foot-long, five-span, open-spandrel, concrete deck arch crossing the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota. When advanced degradation made rehabilitation necessary, Hennepin County and HNTB considered users’ needs and the structure’s historic nature to develop a design that limited disruption and restored the bridge’s grandeur, while extending the long-term service life. The design incorporated elements from the original architectural design. Applying modern construction methods and innovative materials, the 93-year-old bridge was closed on May 8, 2016 and re-opened for service on September 1, 2016, 116 days later to the approval of the local community.

41st Street Pedestrian Bridge, Chicago, IL
The pedestrian bridge spanning over Lake Shore Drive & several Railroads, is comprised of 240’ long twin inclined arch spans supporting a 20’ wide curved concrete deck. Both arches are inclined in opposite directions to create an elegant “S” curve. The Project possesses many challenges such as, shipping and erection over extremely active RR tracks (263 daily trains), a major highway and need for a temporary bridge to allow erection of main spans.

Matthew D. Baughman P.Eng, PE, SE - Senior Bridge Engineer, COWI
Matt Baughman is a senior bridge engineer in the Seattle office of COWI. Matt has thirteen years of experience in bridge projects, including signature pedestrian bridges and major cable-stayed bridges.

How to Skip a Stone Across a Busy Intersection
The Totem Lake Connector is a bicycle and pedestrian bridge that will connect the two ends of the 5.75-mile long Cross Kirkland Corridor Trail, which is currently severed by one of Kirkland’s most complicated and busy intersections: Totem Lake Boulevard and NorthEast 124th Street. The new bridge will serve as a regional landmark and a gateway to the rapidly developing Totem Lake area. The Skipping Stone design is comprised of several undulating arches that span below and above the deck as the bridge crosses the roadways, and a loop ramp over the wetlands. 

Chris Knipp, P.E. - Engineer - Structures, Jacobs

Two Become One: Adjacent Precast Tub Girder Design for High Speed Rail
The ballasted bridge at Kings River is composed of 2-two span units with a max span length of 112’ and a total length of 445’, and is to carry two lines of high speed rail. The design of the superstructure incorporated a unique concept of erecting two precast prestressed concrete tub girders, placed together and connected through their individual interior webs, to form a single span two-cell box girder segment. The presentation will focus on the challenges faced and the complex design requirements for this high speed rail bridge

Judie Refvik, PE - Senior Rail Bridge Engineer, HDR
Judie has been working in the field of railroad bridge engineering since beginning her career in 1997, first at BNSF in Kansas City, Kansas, and later with several consulting firms in the Chicago area.

Importance of Fatigue in the Condition Evaluation of the I-74 Bridge over CN Railroad
The existing I-74 bridge over CN railroad, originally constructed in 1956, is a 720' continuous bridge with built-up steel girders reinforced with welded cover plates. As the bridge nears the end of its service life, EXP evaluated options for its rehabilitation or replacement. The welded cover plates, along with other fatigue-prone details on the existing bridge, played a large role in determining the preferred alternative. This presentation highlights the various rehabilitation and replacement options evaluated, as well the fatigue analysis methodology used to determine the remaining service life of the cover plates.

Fluid Dynamic Analysis using Pseudo-Static Loading Sequence Analysis
The Line 6A Arches consists of two self-supporting 34” steel pipes used to transport crude oil across a 300’ shipping canal. Large dynamic responses have been observed during the beginning and end of oil deliveries. A pseudo-static non-linear staged construction analysis was performed to evaluate its capacity to resist operating stresses resulting from the dynamic responses.

Investigation Of Using 0.7 In. Diameter Strand At 2 In. Spacing For Precast/Prestressed Concrete Members
In recent years, application of the 0.7-in.-diameter strands in prestressed concrete girders for highway bridges have received the attention of many researchers in the United States. Using large size strands has the advantage of producing significantly large amount of pretensioning force with fewer number of strands, which lowers the centroid of the pretensioned strands and enhances the flexural capacity of pretensioned concrete girders.

How to Design a Tall Bridge Pier in 5 Minutes
How to Design a Tall Pier in 5 minutes” is an example of using the 5-10 rule – how to design any bridge component in 5 minutes to within 10% accuracy. In this session, the presenter explains that the preliminary design of a tall bridge pier can be completed through three easy steps: calculating the service and strength loads, sizing the pier to limit service deflection and secondary effects, and finally determining the reinforcement ratio for adequate strength. For each step, hand calculation tricks, parametric graphs and rules-of-thumb that help to expedite the preliminary design process will be shared.

Brett is a licensed Structural Engineer in Illinois and is a licensed Professional Engineer in five states. He received his bachelors from Valparaiso University and his masters from University of Illinois at Chicago.

Design and Construction of a Curved bridge in a Tight Residential Setting
The new Forest Avenue bridge replaced an aging structure in a constrained residential setting. The proposed construction of the bridge had to be kept in mind throughout the design process due to narrow residential streets and a steep ravine under the bridge.

Mark Shaffer, PE, SE, -  Bridge Design Policy Engineer, Illinois Department of Transportation

De-Mystifying Seismic Multi-Modal Analyses
Multi-modal seismic analysis of bridges is required by AASHTO for most structures in Seismic Zones 3 and 4, which is present in the Midwest due to the New Madrid fault.  This level of analysis often causes much confusion and anxiety in engineers, who may have not performed one and have no visual cue for what the results of their analysis should look like.  This presentation gives an overview of what a multi-modal analysis is, when it is required, and, most importantly, a visual rundown of each step in the process.
