RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CONTROL OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF VEE 77 ENGINEERING STRUCTURES

RECCOMMANDATIONS POUR LA VERIFICATION DES ETUDES D'EXECUTION DES OUVRAGES D'ART VEE 77

Recommendations are given for the control of the construction of special bridges (usual non-typical bridges: portable bridges, permanent bridges exceeding 120 M, bridges with special design and calculation problems, permanent bridges, the height of which over the ground exceeds 25 M, permanent bridges the foundations of which entail special problems, structures the construction of which necessitates unusual construction methods or new techniques, tunnels over 20 M in length, cover trenches exceeding 200 M); large-scale structures (cantilevered bridges, bridges built by means of sliding, stayed girder bridges) are excluded. The following aspects are dealt with: (1) role, duties and responsibilities of sponsors and contractors; (2) objectives to be reached in controls. These objectives are of four types: technical value, cost, construction time, maintenance; (3) uniformity of construction studies; (4) different cases leading to different control methods according to the structures studied, the conditions under which control will be effected, composition of the control team; (5) different control stages. Appended are: analysis of various kinds of responsibilities, development and illustration of basic principles of safety and quality of the data on damages most usually caused by defective construction studies, elementary setra calculation programs to be used in parts of control operation. /TRRL/
