ENGINEERING STRUCTURES - SURVEILLANCE AND NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING. THE ROLE OF LABORATORIES IN THE SURVEILLANCE AND FOLLOW-UP OF ENGINEERING STRUCTURES

LES OUVRAGES D'ART-SURVEILLANCE ET AUSCULTATION-L'ACTION DES LABORATOIRES DANS LA SURVEILLANCE ET LE SUIVI DES OUVRAGES D'ART

The surveillance of structures enables maintenance and repair operations to be carried out and safety measures to be taken to prevent personal injuries from happening. This surveillance takes the form of periodical visual observations which can be supplemented with investigations needing more specialized techniques. The road and bridge regional laboratories take an active part by supplying or using heavy equipment for that purpose, by directly performing most of the inspections currently carried out and by studying the methodological aspects of these operations. They also provide guidance to the local authorities and as far as possible supply the necessary training to the personnel responsible for the work to be carried out. (TRRL)
