Bridge inspection and lab testing for determining performance of concrete bridges
This research work will collect data from various concrete bridges to determine the structural heath of the bridges. These data will be analysed, and a report will be provided to MEDA Engineering & Technical Services with recommendation on rehabilitation and strengthening actions needed for various components of these bridges. This research project will also develop a new strengthening technique for bridge girders that are weak in transferring shear load. A postdoctoral fellow will be hired to execute this project with the supervision of Dr. Sreekanta Das at the University of Windsor, as the academic supervisor, and Mr. David Lawn at MEDA Engineering & Technical Services, as the industry supervisor. The project will be completed within a 12-month period.
