Engineered Training Solutions provides a variety of CPD courses to engineers. Our range of one day events are perfect for those looking to improve their understanding of crucial civil and structural engineering areas.
The aim is to educate all participants on understanding fatigue in bridges.
This course will provide an introduction to the fatigue in metals, and the effects this can have on bridges. The course will begin with an introduction to the types fatigue factors encountered in metals to help the learner to confidently build up their knowledge, before turning towards bridge specific fatigue issues.
Inspection and repair methods will be covered, before finishing with examples and case studies looking at fatigue design and assessment for both new and existing bridges.
