ORN7 Volume 2: Bridge Inspector's Handbook

Second volume of an overseas road note


In many developing countries there is a shortage of trained bridge engineers. Where this is so, other personnel must be used for routine bridge inspections, or the bridges are neglected and deteriorate. Using this handbook, a person with experience, but little formal technical training, such as a road maintenance supervisor, should be able to carry out routine bridge inspections on the majority of bridges
