Event Overview:

Aging infrastructure is a global challenge that impacts all types of structures. From bridges to buildings, tunnels to transmission towers, and pipelines to power poles.  While some Asset Owners look at their assets in terms of depreciation, with the assumption that it will be replaced at some point into the future; the reality is the ability to replace the asset with a similar or even improved version is often found to be challenging, if not impossible.

For example, bridges typically are designed for 100 years life, after which in theory they will be replaced. This may be true in some cases, but what about large bridges on the main traffic routes? The cost to remove and rebuild may be higher than originally thought, plus with the continued population growth and increase in demand, its closure is likely to cause significant disruptions to the road users. Hence in some cases, it may be more cost effective to ensure the continued and dependable performance of the bridge beyond its original design life.

This is why the philosophies of Maintenance Planning and Corrosion Management should be integral parts of the overall Asset Management Plan. This seminar will discuss and provide case studies, on the challenges and different tools that asset owners, managers and engineers should consider. From condition monitoring and assessment, durability design, remediation, and in turn the development of Maintenance Plan and Corrosion Management strategies; all with the ultimate aim of providing the lowest whole-of-life cost benefit for the asset over its design life and beyond.
