• Calculation of loads; • Three Components Approach
• Analysis of effects of loads; o Preservation
• Preliminary design of bridge elements; o Rehabilitation
o Replacement
BENCHMARKING COMPONENT
• Benchmarking projects helps to achieve good
performance as it gives opportunities to measure
against best performance, using appropriate
indicators such as construction cost, construction
completion time, defects, client satisfaction with
product and service, productivity, promotion result-
oriented thinking etc
• Participants are expected to visit any existing and/or
an ongoing bridge construction to appreciate the
practical aspects of bridge design and construction.
