Boston , MA   United States
Sponsor(s): ACI Committee 342, Evaluation of Concrete Bridges

Meeting: A session titled “Evaluation and Load Testing of Concrete Bridges More Than 75 Years Old” at the ACI Concrete Convention, October 29-November 2, 2023, in Boston, MA, sponsored by ACI Committee 342, Evaluation of Concrete Bridges and Bridge Elements.

Solicited: Presentations and Symposium Publication (SP) papers are invited related to how in-place condition evaluation and load testing can inform maintenance, planning and asset management, and retrofit/replacement decisions for old bridge structures, defined as being more than 75 years old. Topics to be considered include implementation of AASHTO load rating methodologies for old structures; methods to analyze bridges with missing design plans, missing as-built plans, or limited knowledge of materials; use of innovative technologies (for example, nondestructive evaluation [NDE]) to supplement limited documentation for load rating of old structures; applications of advanced modeling combined with field testing for load rating of old structures; and concrete composite bridges that may incorporate unconventional design or materials (for example, embedded rails/beams, masonry, stone, and brick).

Requirements: 1) presentation and paper title; 2) author/speaker name(s), title, organization, and contact information; and 3) an abstract of up to 200 words. The Special Publication will follow the ACI Publications Policy. Authors are encouraged to consult the SP Style and Format Guidelines, which describe the requirements for submission of manuscripts.

Deadline: Abstracts are due by February 27, 2023, and
final papers are due by June 30, 2023.
