Pre-Symposium Course




Participants of the IABSE Guimarães Symposium are invited to attend for FREE the

Final Conference of COST Action TU 1406 – Quality Control Specifications for Roadway Bridges at an European Level, taking place two days before the symposium. 

Date: 25 - 26 March 2019
Location: School of Engineering, University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal
Action website: https://www.tu1406.eu/

During the implementation of asset management strategies, maintenance actions are required in order to keep assets at a desired performance level. In case of roadway bridges, specific performance indicators are established for their components. These indicators can be qualitative or quantitative based, and they can be obtained during principal inspections, through a visual examination, a non-destructive test or a temporary or permanent monitoring system.

COST Action TU1406 aimed to bring together, for the first time, both research and practicing community in order to develop a guideline for the establishment of quality control plans in roadway bridges. This was to be created by comprising specific recommendations for assessing performance indicators as well as for the definition of performance goals and by integrating the most recent knowledge on performance assessment procedures.

The Final Conference of COST Action TU1406 is organized by the University of Minho. The number of participants is expected to reach 200.
