Event Details

“ACCELERATED BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES USING PREFABRICATED AND PRE-ASSEMBLED STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS.”

This topic presents the current state-of-the-art on the use of innovative prefabricated systems and elements in modern bridge construction. The totally prefabricated bridge systems offer the maximum advantage for rapid construction, and depend on a range of prefabricated bridge elements that are transported to the work site and assembled in a rapid-construction process. The main objective is to limit traffic disruption during construction, replacement or rehabilitation of bridges, and to minimize the impact of construction activities on the environment. Here are some of the topics that will be covered

  • Prefabricating and Pre-Assembling Structural Systems with Speedy Bridge Construction Techniques
  • Preparing prefabricated bridge elements that are transported to the work site and assembled in rapid-construction process
  • Using high performance concrete and steel innovation solutions: Implementing light innovative equipment during construction
  • Determining the objective, procurement process, and business model in detail for innovative structural system, sustainable concepts and materials, and cost effective solutions.
  • Several case studies will be presented related to the state-of-the-art of quick construction and its application for highway, railway and foot bridges.
