Bridges connects different places. Different types of truss steel bridges are used in practice. This thesis presents the analysis and design of highway steel truss bridge using commercial software according to BS 5400. Truss bridge is designed for Dead load, Live Loads, and Wind Loads. The geometry of a typical truss bridge of span 66m is modeled in the STAAD PRO and the member properties, loads are also applied. The analysis is carried out and the members are designed. The software used is STAAD PRO and the calculations are checked manually. Under slung or deck type bridge is analyzed and designed. The results of the study are reported. Abutment and slab design are also carried out.
