MAINTENANCE AND REHABILITATION OF TIMBER BRIDGES lNTRODUCTlON Wood is one of the most durable bridge materials, but over extended periods it may be subject to deterioration from decay, insect attack, or mechanical damage.

The Innovative Bridge Design Handbook: Construction, Rehabilitation, and Maintenance encompasses the state of the art in bridge design, construction, maintenance, and safety assessment. Written by an international group of experts, this book provides innovative design approaches used in various parts of the world and explores concepts in design.

BRIDGE MAINTENANCE, REPAIR, AND REHABILITATION The repair of bridges often has been a reactive activity, initiated only when deterioration threatens the safety or tolerance of the public. Now, influenced by BMSs, owners are beginning to emphasize cost-effective proactive strategies from the start, when the bridge is new.

focusing only on replacing poor bridges while ignoring the maintenance needs of good and fair bridges is inefficient and cost-prohibitive in the long term.

A successful bridge program seeks a balanced approach to preservation and rehabilitation/. Most states, including Iowa, have a significant number of substandard bridges.

This number will increase significantly unless some type of preventative maintenance is employed. Both the Iowa Department of Transportation and Iowa counties have successfully employed numerous maintenance, repair and rehabilitation (MR&R) strategies for correcting various types of deficiencies.

The book covers in synthetic form nearly all the most important problems concerning bridge rehabilitation, such as bridge superstructure and substructure, the typical damage observed in bridges as well as the assessment and evaluation techniques of their technical condition.

The post repair assessment is a tool with the engineer to evaluate whether the parent material and the repair material have obtained bond or whether the cracks or the voids have been filled up by the grouting materials.

Thus, any scheme for effective repairs can be based on the pre-repair and post- repair evaluation of concrete structures "The book covers in synthetic form nearly all the most important problems concerning bridge rehabilitation, such as bridge superstructure and substructure, the typical damage observed in bridges as well as the assessment and evaluation techniques of their technical condition.

The book is intended mainly for postgraduate university students. "Repair and rehabilitation of steel bridges require a high degree of ingenuity and precision. Although steel enjoys an inherent advantage over other structural materials for its unique properties and its adaptability to various forms of connections, arriving at a simple and practicable remedial solution is far from simple.

This new reference work addresses both the maintenance and the upkeep of existing movable bridges, as well as the complete design of new movable bridges.

Comprehensive coverage is provided on engineering design and actual construction technology used in building all major types of bridges, including all structural issues and relevant mechanical and electrical systems used to make. Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters BCI (WoS).The amount of deteriorating bridges is increasing gradually, and the costs of maintenance, repair and rehabilitation of these bridges often far exceed available budgets.

To alleviate this issue, the bridge engineering profession continues to take positive steps towards developing more comprehensive bridge monitoring and management systems.

To alleviate this issue, the bridge engineering professioncontinues to take positive steps towards developing more comprehensivebridge monitoring and management systems.The number of deteriorating bridges is increasing worldwide. Costs of maintenance, repair and rehabilitation of these bridges far exceed available budgets.

Maintaining the safety and serviceability of existing bridges by making better use of available resources is a major concern for bridge management.
