the future of bridge inspection

The Future of Bridge Inspection

The Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code (S6-14, 2014) considers a service life of 75 years for newly constructed bridge. What does this mean in engineering terms? It means that the bridges of the future should have satisfactory performance, both durability and structural, during the proposed life-cycle. This can be quite challenging when we look closely; the environment and environmental loading (i.e. snow, freeze and thaw cycles, corrosion, earthquakes, etc.) can… Read More »The Future of Bridge Inspection

NDT Techniques

5 NDT Methods for Structural Evaluation

NDT methods can be used in routine inspection projects; they can be used to follow up the state of damages in periodical checks. The other advantage of NDT methods is that they can be performed by minimum intervention to the structure. This helps prevent aggravating the problems in already damaged structure. NDT methods can be used to assess the condition of elements that do not have easy access. One example… Read More »5 NDT Methods for Structural Evaluation
