2017 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Fall Convention
TRB is cosponsoring the 2017 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Fall Convention on October 15-19, 2017 in Anaheim, California. The convention will include a global perspective on strategies for assessing the in-service performance of concrete bridges through load testing of newly built and existing bridges. The impact of differences in design and analysis assumptions, live loads, design codes, reserve capacities, age of structures, construction practices between global regions on assessment of concrete bridges will be examined. Recent developments with regard to codes and standards around the world for load testing will be discussed based on diagnostic and proof load testing case studies from different regions of the world.
