- Course Outline
After participating in this course, you will be able to:Description
• Conduct condition survey and utilize the selection criteria for prioritizing bridge rehabilitation and life cycle costing analysis for steel concrete
and timber bridges
• Implement rehabilitation methods for pre-stressed and post-tensioned bridges
• Rehabilitate effectively your bridge decks with the additional insight gained from this course
• Choose from top methods used for substructure rehabilitation
• Apply the best techniques suitable for refurbishing joints and bearings
• Use the experiences of specialists to upgrade your bridge management systems
• Employ the latest developments in steel cathodic protection methods and steel coating
Capacity to carry present vehicle loads has become questionable for numerous bridges both due to deterioration under normal aging process as well as concurrent increasing vehicle loads. There is a responsibility and an opportunity for bridge owners and maintainers to prioritize work on these bridges in depth and select methods and techniques of repairing, strengthening, and replacing deficient, existing bridge structures within limited budgets. This seminar discusses bridge management systems, highlights the more technical aspects of bridge rehabilitation, describes bridge inspection equipment, special condition survey techniques and procedures and familiarizes participants with the latest practical methods of repairing and strengthening existing bridges. Case studies of condition surveys, strengthening and rehabilitating bridges will also be presented.Objective
To provide practical methods for managing bridges so that inspection process, assessment, strengthening, rehabilitating / replacing them is accomplished effectively within budget limits.Who Should Attend
Managers and engineers of national, provincial, and local highway agencies, railway bridge engineers, consulting engineers, superintendents and contractors, fabricators, material suppliers and material testing personnel who are interested in rehabilitation of bridges, regulatory agency staff, and others responsible for inspecting, maintaining, upgrading and safeguarding existing bridges.
