Bridge Repair Manual
The purpose of this manual is to describe and detail standard repair procedures for
defects commonly found in bridges owned and maintained by ARTC. Both new
procedures and those that have been previously used successfully on ARTC's
bridges are included.
Nature of the repair procedure
The repair procedures given are generic in nature; that is, they apply to a range of
similar solutions, with varying member size, position and arrangement. As such it is
not possible to completely detail the repair. Additional information such as the size
and connections of strengthening elements and their precise position needs to be
supplied to enable the repair to be completed.
