The webinar will start by providing a brief introduction to the process of scour in bridges and discuss the main factors that affect scour .. Read more development in bridge foundations. Scour assessment and scour risk management frameworks will be presented and an example of a bridge scour assessment will be demonstrated. and European infrastructure owners and managers, such as Network Rail, Highways England, TWI. His research has contributed towards in-depth understanding of the fatigue behaviour of riveted railway bridges and developed methods for more reliable quantification of their remaining fatigue life taking into account historical rail traffic, novel fatigue assessment methods, loading, resistance and modelling uncertainties as well as system effects. Later on, Dr imam extended his work on fatigue towards developing fracture mechanics guidelines for the assessment of fatigue crack growth in steel bridge details towards the optimisation of inspection and maintenance planning in steel bridges. Recently, Dr Imam research has expanded towards understanding the potential impacts of climate change on bridge deterioration and quantifying the resilience of bridge infrastructure against extreme events.
