Paper Abstract

Since 1985, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has been conducting non-destructive testing (NDT) to evaluate the load carrying capacity of existing bridges. This paper describes the procedure of load rating existing bridges through non-destructive load testing. The application of field testing eliminates some unnecessary retrofitting/demolishing and identifies the unsafe bridges for public safety.
