Bridge maintenance update (2005-2006)

This issue of Current Topics includes over 70 abstracts of reports, conference papers, books and journal articles which focus on the inspection and testing, protection, strengthening and repair of highway and railway bridges, both in the UK and overseas. Specific topics include corrosion prevention by means of coatings; use of fibre reinforced plastics and other techniques for bridge strengthening; bridge management systems; condition survey methods including ropework; forecasting of durability including computer software; and cost control. Many abstracts report case studies of maintenance and strengthening projects, and of maintenance strategy in particular countries. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory’s Library Database between 2005 and 2006. Much of the relevant English language published literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) database.
