Summary

CBDG 27th Annual Conference

The future of concrete bridges – Embracing technology

The influence of technology continues to be at the forefront of construction and no less so than for concrete bridges. Iron bar to improve concrete performance was used in the 1870s (Homersfield Bridge Suffolk/Norfolk borders) and reinforcement with the Hennebique system (Chewton Glen Bridge, Hampshire) in 1902. The introduction of precast, prestressing, cantilever and incrementally launched sections pushed the boundaries further. The exponential leap in computing power in the 21st century has enabled an explosion of digital technology in all areas of the design and construction and, more recently, remote assessment and inspection.

The CBDG’s 27th Annual conference will discuss the influence of intelligent engineering on concrete bridges; a material with intrinsic versatility, design flexibility and, above all, natural durability.

The provisional programme is as follows, with more presentations to be added as speakers are confirmed.

HS2 Fulfen Wood Overbridge
