Nathan Dubbs, PhD, PE to present 21st Century Bridge Evaluation: New Technologies and Solutions

Nathaniel Dubbs, PhD, PE, M.ASCE, Ehsan Minaie, PhD, PE, M.ASCE, and David Lattanzi, PhD, PE, M.ASCE to present 21st Century Bridge Evaluation: New Technologies and Solutions - Sponsored by ASCE Continuing Education and the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) at 12:00 PM on June 8, 2017.

This webinar explains and discusses the basics of new technologies and techniques being used in the assessment and evaluation of bridges, and presents a general overview of traditional and modern load rating and condition evaluation methods.

Course topics include the current state of transportation assets in the United States, traditional load rating methods, application of finite element modeling in load rating of bridges, instrumentation and load testing of bridges, other applications of sensing and simulation in assessing bridge structures such as structural health monitoring of existing bridges, and application of robotic systems, data analytics, and other autonomous or semi-autonomous technologies in bridge condition assessment.


Intelligent Infrastructure Systems Overview

Intelligent Infrastructure Systems works with owners to assess infrastructure using advances in information, sensing, and communication technologies that have developed over the past decade. Intelligent Infrastructure Systems offers world-class applications of the most reliable monitoring, modeling and decision tools and techniques, together with the engineering support and experience of a highly respected engineering firm, to aid infrastructure owners such as state DOT’s, local municipalities and toll bridge authorities as they preserve and renew their key assets. By gathering real time information on actual live loads and recording the reaction of the structures, Intelligent Infrastructure Systems derives a maintenance and/or renewal plan that focuses on performing the retrofit or intervention in a targeted manner and helps infrastructure owners to focus the rehabilitation, renewal, and preservation efforts on the precise areas of the infrastructure inventory that need it the most and that will provide the most beneficial return.
