Finley Engineering Group, Inc. (FEG) of Florida is providing final design and construction engineering services for six segmental bridges on Israel's Road 431 project - the first in Israeli bridge construction history to use external tendons. FEG used LUSAS Bridge to analyse and optimise the pier and deviator segment diaphragms for the imposed loadings whilst keeping the segment weight within the 65 tonne lifting capacity of the contractor's equipment.

As a result of FEG's design the owner and contractor were provided with major benefits from simplified precasting details, thinner sections, rapid erection procedures and improved long-term durability.
