Bridge engineering not only requires a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of design and construction techniques, but also demands that the challenge of the long-term behaviour and maintenance of such structures is met. This requires an innovative, multi-disciplinary approach built on a sound foundation of experience and research.

ICE organised an international conference on current and future trends in bridge design, construction and maintenance, in conjunction with a team of world-renowned bridge engineers and international organisations, in order to share new findings and maintain progress in of bridge engineering.

This book contains the proceedings of the conference held on 17 and 18 September 2007 including presentations from twenty-five countries. It outlines each session from the conference - highlighting innovation and best practice in the field of bridge engineering. The book supports practitioners in implementing the discussed methods of practice by presenting the exchange of ideas and further information in a concise manner.

The papers presented in this book are categorised under the following themes:

  • State-of-the-art in long-span bridges
  • Lessons that can be learnt from the past
  • Advances in the understanding of the structural behaviour of bridges
  • Durability, structural reliability, risk management and health monitoring
  • Bridge management and its relationship with infrastructure management
  • Innovation in bridge design, construction and repair
  • The future of condition monitoring, assessment and maintenance
  • Measure and monitoring of bridge deformations and deflection
  • From the past to the future
