WTS Philadelphia
a Virtual Technical Seminar (1 PDH Offered):

Bridge Life Cycle Cost Savings Through Inspectability Design

Standard practice during bridge design is to consider the biddability of the construction documents, the constructability of the design, and the operability of the asset.

Quite often, designers do not consider the inspectability of the bridge over its' life cycle.

Inspection, required by law on a 24-month cycle at a maximum, presents the bridge Owner with costs such as labor, equipment expenses, travel impacts, and safety. These costs, especially for complex bridges, signature structures, and high-level river crossings, can be reduced if inspectability is considered during the design phase.

This seminar will review the impacts of inspectability on potential bridge design, construction, and inspection planning, as well as various inspectability challenges and potential solutions.
