Since the last three Bridge Management conferences, a tremendous amount of research work has gone into ways of tackling every task associated with sound management and to try to find ways of ensuring that problems with bridges do not occur in the future. There is a move to fit new bridges with monitoring devices so that any potentially damaging mechanism can be detected by what are essentially early warning systems. This is a move towards 'smart' or 'intelligent' bridges of the future. The papers of the Fourth International Conference on Bridge Management are intended to provide bridge engineers with practical and economical solutions to pressing problems. There are many case studies and the results of new research are presented. For abstracts of individual papers see ITRD E106407 - E106475.
