Masonry Arch Bridges form about 40% of European bridge stock. 60% of these bridges are over 100 years old and carrying traffic with ever increasing speed, weight and density without any change to their original construction.
This masterclass held at the University of the West of England, 19-20 July, will introduce recent developments in masonry arch bridge design, new construction, monitoring, assessment and maintenance from a practical perspective.
Speakers include SLCT Director Roz Artis-Young who will discuss applications and use of mortars in masonry arch repair. The event is aimed at bridge owners, local authority staff, consulting engineers, contractors and academic engineers.
