Description

Description
Modular steel piers are prefabricated braced frame structures based on systems developed initially for offshore platforms. These piers resist lateral forces more efficiently that concrete piers. Installation of this type of pier can be performed in days instead of months required for cast-in-place concrete piers.

Application
Modular steel piers are used to support the bridge superstructure at intermediate support points along the bridge.
