Bridge Evaluation for Rehabilitation Design Considerations 4.5 Day
Construction and Maintenance
Instructor-led Training (ILT)
TRAINING LEVEL: Intermediate
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 20 Maximum: 30
The ultimate goal of this effort is the development of a nationally accepted program that will serve to improve quality, ensure uniformity, and establish a minimum standard for bridge rehabilitation. The course will present innovative and state-of-the-art bridge rehabilitation technologies and procedures for a broad array of structural elements including bridge decks, girders, piers, and abutments.
Core curriculum for the course is 4.5 days and covers the outcomes listed below.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Describe conditions that suggest the need for rehabilitation
Identify the need for, and capacity of, destructive and/or non destructive testing (NDT) for assessment of existing conditions
Prescribe analysis and load testing to determine the effect of existing conditions on the structure
Distinguish root causes of distress and deterioration
Formulate appropriate rehabilitation strategies
Select procedures and materials for rehabilitation
Develop effective rehabilitation construction documents
Prepare and implement quality assurance for construction
Monitor and resolve construction and material problems
The target audience includes design engineers, field engineers, resident engineers, structural engineers, materials engineers, and other technical personnel involved in the construction and rehabilitation design of bridges. Participants with an engineering background are expected to constitute the target audience. People knowledgeable in new bridge design, but not necessarily bridge rehabilitation, should attend.
