To bring together national and international specialists in bridge engineering, to share research results and discern some of the main issues that could be used to shape a bridge code, in order to improve the practice of design and construction of this infraestructure type in Mexico.
The topics proposed for this workshop are:
STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND EXPERIMENTAL WORK
Introduction of methods and techniques that allow to determine the stress state and displacement fields in the several structural systems, as well as the try outs in structural prototypes for bridges.
Topic about the determination of loads, evaluation of the structure response, as well as the sizing and the details of the structural elements.
FOUNDATIONS, ABUTMENTS, PIERS AND WALLS
It includes the topics related to design, constructive process and behavior of the different elements that shape the infrastructure of a bridge.
JOINTS, BEARINGS AND ANTI-SEISMIC DEVICES
Including design and innovations to improve the behavior of bridges’ superstructure.
MAINTENANCE Y REHABILITATION
Topic related to maintenance techniques and intervention programs for bridges that have suffered deterioration and structural damage.
