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. Timber bridges must be periodically maintained or rehabilitated in order to keep them in a condition that will give optimumFile Size: KB.

According to recent reports, of the nationsbridges, about 40 percent are found structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. Deficiency is a performance element that is at or below a specified minimum level, generally established from a consensus of 3/5(1).

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.

Wood has been rediscovered as a material for bridges. Timber bridges are well suited for short- and medium-span applications to carry vehicle or pedestrian traffic (Fig. 7).Combining the advances in wood design, the use of glued-laminated timber, stress-laminated deck, and preservative treatment, permits wooden bridges that are economical, easy to construct, and which have a long service life.

To better understand the live-load performance of covered timber bridges and to develop improved criteria for their load ratings, a series of live-load tests were performed on 11 single-span, historic covered timber by: 1.

Book Description. Maintenance, Safety, Risk, Management and Life-Cycle Performance of Bridges contains lectures and papers presented at the Ninth International Conference on Bridge Maintenance, Safety and Management (IABMAS ), held in Melbourne, Australia, July This volume consists of a book of extended abstracts and a USB card containing the full papers of.

Timber's strength, light weight, and energy-absorbing properties furnish features desirable for bridge construction. Timber is capable of supporting short-term overloads without adverse effects.

Contrary to popular belief, large wood members provide good fire resistance qualities that meet or exceed those of other materials in severe fire 3/5(1).

bridges that span at least 6 m (20 ft) (FHWA ). An estimated 6, timber bridges, in addition to those recorded by the NBI, are located on Federal government lands and/or span less than 6 m. A large majority of these timber bridges are located on secondary highways in rural America.

Timber beam bridges are the predominant superstructure type.of these bridges revealed severe corrosion of the steel compo-nents and deterioration of the timber plank decks, indicating that the bridges were structurally deficient and required major rehabilitation or replacement.

Timber's high strength-to-weight ratio, combined with the ease and speed of construction inherent in the off-site prefabrication methods used, make a timber bridge a suitable option in many Book Edition: 1st Edition.
