Assessment Strategies of Fire Damaged Bridges

Objective: The objective of this research is to develop simple tools to evaluate the effects of fire damage on the structural properties and load capacity of steel bridge elements. This is very specialized work. Based on discussions with PennDOT and Purdue University (Purdue) and an existing relationship between PennDOT, Pitt and Purdue, several tasks involved in this project are to be subcontracted to Purdue University.
