TESTING OF BRIDGES
Bridge management analytical expert system (AESUM) stores information on inspections of 70% of bridges and 15% of bridges from their total number on the roads of state and local importance, respectively.
Thanks to the operative and coordinated work of “DerzhdorNDI” SE specialists in 2020, the information about inspections of 325 bridge structures was entered!
Also, in 2020 we started actively performing the static and dynamic testing of bridges of different classes.
In particular, on the eve of the New 2021, “DerzhdorNDI” SE team tested a new bridge across the Chortomlyk River on the road H-23 Kropyvnytskyi - Kryvyi Rih - Zaporizhzhia.
Different loading schemes were applied on the bridge span structures, which simulated extreme deformations. Deflections and stresses that occur in the structures were recorded.
The recorded indicators correspond to the norms, and therefore the possibility of traffic opening was provisionally stated.
In the nearest future, a comparison of indicators with the values of the project will be performed and a further strategy for the operational maintenance of the facility will be recommended as a whole.
We pay special attention to asset holders of bridges on roads of local importance regarding the need for instrumental inspections of transport facilities and determination of their current operational condition. Only knowing the operational condition of transport facilities it is possible to develop their rational rehabilitation plan in your region!
