Bridge and viaduct inspections and major observed anomalies


The bridges and viaducts, named in technical terms as Special Works of Art, are engineering works of extreme importance for the economic and social development of the country. These works are subject to all kinds of environmental action, natural wear and accidental loading during their lives. Due to this, it is important to manage inspection and maintenance activities in the structures to promote their proper conservation. In the inspections is made the survey of the existing anomalies in the structures and indication of the treatments to be performed by the maintenance.
