Non-Destructive Testing for Detailed Bridge Condition Survey

Non-Destructive Testing for Detailed Bridge Condition Survey

Introduction Bridges are among the most important infrastructure facilities. So far, the inspection and testing of bridge structures have largely been limited to visual inspection, chain dragging, extracting cores, and in some cases, half-cell corrosion potential mapping. Lots of interesting research have been done by researchers around

How to Evaluate Concrete Piles?

Structure inspection manuals such as the Ontario Structure Inspection Manual (OSIM) mostly emphasizes on the visual inspection and physical condition of bridge structures. The visual inspection methodology in this guideline consists of close up visual assessment of defects in the superstructure and substructure. This methodology is limited to

Damaged Bridges

How to Test Damaged Bridges?

Damaged Bridges are a major concern in the maintenance and operation of transportation infrastructure. Bridge structures in North America were mainly developed in the 1960’s and 1970’s and are rapidly approaching the end of their initial service life. Major mega cities in North America spend millions of dollars
