eSpan140 has been named a 2012 Hot Product by Modern Steel Construction Magazine (MSC). The Web-based tool brings together standards for plate, rolled beam, structural plate, and corrugated steel pipe, saving users time and money when selecting steel for bridge designs shorter than 140 feet. It was launched by the Short Span Steel Bridge Alliance in June 2012. For more on this tool, see our August 2012 article, “Standardizing short-span steel bridge design.”
