Fire and Flood Design, Performance, Mitigation and Strengthening for Concrete Bridges
Meeting: Technical session on “Fire and Flood Design, Performance, Mitigation and Strengthening for Concrete Bridges,” during The ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition – Fall 2019, Cincinnati, OH, October 20-14, 2019; sponsored by Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 343 Concrete Bridge Design, and ACI Committee 345, Bridge Construction and Preservation.
Symposium Publications (SP): Yes
Solicited: Recent years have shown the potential vulnerability of concrete bridges to fire and flood hazards. Bridge fires can be caused by crashed or overturned vehicles, arson, accidents or wildfire, while flooding can be due to coastal storm surge or inland riverine and flash events. While provisions for fire and flood safety are requirement for building design, essentially no such requirements exist for concrete bridges. The committees are soliciting presentations on topics related to design, performance, assessment, mitigation, rehabilitation and strengthening of concrete bridges for such hazards. Academic, industry and agency representatives will attend this session.
Requirements: 1) presentation title; 2) author/speaker name(s), job title, organization, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address; and 3) abstract of up to 300 words on the topic selected, discussing the type of hazard presented, case study, performance evaluation, post-hazard assessment, design, and strengthening/rehabilitation.
Deadline: Abstracts are due by January 1, 2019.
