These free Webinars provide a quick introduction to the latest infrastructure innovations and technologies.
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Load and Resistance Factor Rating (LRFR) Implementation Webinar Series
The Webinars will provide participants with information on using the load testing technique to evaluate the live load carrying capacity of bridges. Among the highlights will be resources available and lessons learned. Topics for the September session include application of load testing techniques in bridge load rating, such as diagnostic static load testing, and ambient vibration dynamic load testing for bridge evaluation. The December session will focus on experiences in North Carolina and Rhode Island, as well as load testing of bridges at Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts.
The target audience for the Webinars includes bridge and structures staff from local, regional, and State transportation agencies; FHWA staff; and consultants. Participants will have the opportunity to download Webinar presentations.
