Research & Testing

Research and Testing

HBM staff is qualified to perform in-depth inspection, bridge load testing and rating of all types of bridges in service. Over time the load carrying capacity of a bridge structure may be reduced due to age, cracking and deterioration. Therefore, it may be necessary to assess the bridge load carrying capacity and remaining service life under actual load conditions. The structural assessment will determine the bridge operating/ultimate load capacity and the remaining service life of the bridge.
