Decarbonisation of bridges and viaducts

An innovative project is currently under way with the UK Department for Transport that is focused on identifying carbon reduction in bridges and viaduct assets with an emphasis on whole-of-asset-life carbon management. This uses a tool that was developed by Mott MacDonald and the University of Bristol called FUTURES - Future Uncertainty Toolkit for Understanding and Responding to an Evolving Society.

Introducing CIRIA’s new guidance Non-destructive testing of civil structures (C798)

In combination with other sources of data, NDT can be used in the processes that safely and efficiently manage structural assets. And yet, for a variety of reasons, the full potential of NDT in civil engineering is yet to be realised. The aim of the new guide Non-destructive testing of civil structures (C798) is to improve this situation by supporting a better-informed, and therefore more successful, application of NDT techniques within the sector.
