Bridge Maintenance and Repair (5 credit hours/5 HSW Hours)
The construction of a bridge generally constitutes a significant cost in the operation of a transportation system. This cost can be avoided or at least delayed for many years by extending the bridge service life through a carefully planned program of maintenance and repair. This 5 hour course describes such a program. First, maintenance and repair tasks common to most types of bridges such as cleaning deck drains, bank restoration, scour protection, debris and snow and ice removal are discussed. Then, maintenance and repair tasks particular to specific bridge types, such as bridges made of steel, concrete, and timber are considered. In addition to discussing maintenance and repair, the course describes procedures for upgrades that expand bridge load-carrying capacity. The course would be especially suitable as a training course for consulting firms and government agencies responsible for bridge maintenance.
