09.40 REGULATION AND RULE CHANGE AFFECTING NEW AND EXISTING BRIDGE PROJECTS

It is always important to keep well informed about changes with regulation and European Committees and most importantly how changes will affects the construction industry. Within this session discover the most recent information so that your future applications and plans are prepared, ultimately avoiding delays. This session will focus on:

  • Development within the Eurocodes
  • Regulation surrounding construction products
  • Future European regulation developments

10.20 CONSTRUCTING THE IZMIT BAY BRIDGE

Hear from one of the most exciting new road projects taking place in Turkey. The main consultant will take you through their experiences from the very early stages of design and tendering. We will then explore the construction of the bridge, and when they predict they will finish. What has the team learnt? What would they do differently?

11.00 Networking Coffee Break

Engineering Focus

11.30 THE VALUE OF STAINLESS STEEL IN BRIDGE DESIGN TO EC3: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF CAPITAL AND LIFE CYCLE COSTS

  • The use of durable high strength (Duplex) stainless steel in bridges
  • Challenging perceptions on the cost of using stainless steel
  • Designing structural stainless steel to Eurocodes
  • A comparison of the construction costs of carbon and stainless steel bridges
  • Life cycle costs for maintenance regimes of carbon and stainless steel bridges

12.20 THE SWISS EXEPRIENCE WITH CARBON FIBRE REINFORCED POLYMERS IN BRIDGE ENGINEERING

  • Why should Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) be used in bridge engineering?
  • Where are meaningful fields for applications?
  • What is the knowledge considering reliability with CFRP in cases like fire and aging?
  • What are the experiences in practical applications within the last two decades?
  • What are the challenges for the future of CFRP in bridge engineering?

13.00 Lunch & Networking

Case Studies

14.00 ORTHOPLUS – Innovative Repair Method for Steel Orthotropic Desk Bridges and its impact on Life Cycle Cost

Steel orthotropic decks, because of their lightness, are usually best suited for long-span bridges and movable bridges. However, they are often subjected to fatigue failure because of the increased size and density of heavy traffic. ORTHOPLUS is an extensive 3-year research program that aimed at better assessment of the lifetime of those structures and optimizing them for a better Life Cycle Cost. That program was the basis for the development of an innovative repair method of those bridges, which was experimented with Eiffage on the Illzach Bridge, in the East of France. Within this session, you will be provided with the technical principles of the repair method and its measured effectiveness, as well as the details of the Life Cycle Assessment conducted by Arcadis to compare this innovative solution with a regular bridge replacement.

14.40 EVALUATION OF BRIDGE MAINTENANCE FOR LARGE BRIDGE STOCK OWNERS

Owning a large number of Bridges within one region can be exceptionally demanding and costly. Explore how to keep maintenance costs low and what are the relevant technologies and maintenance themes throughout a series of structures.
