SAMCO Final Report 2006 F09 Report on Bridge Management
WP9: PRACTICAL BRIDGE MANAGEMENT
A special work package is dedicated to the management of bridges in practice as the bridges represent a large part of the capital invested in the infrastructure. The infra- structure is in return essential for the economic development of Europe by favouring the exchange of goods and persons.
The work package aim at organising the knowledge and specific tools in SAMCO from the end-users point of view, so they will result in practical guidelines and criteria for which the end-users needs for the management of bridges.
It is therefore important to clarify and specify the end-users requirements and need for monitoring and assessment used in the bridge management and this is where the SAMCO network needs the input from the end-users. This input is important, as the end-user is the final decision maker for both the financial aspects and the operation of the structures.
To facilitate your commenting and input, we have set up the brief questionnaire, which we hope you will fill out and return it before 28th November 2002 to:
Livia Pardi, Autostrade S.p.A. at firstname.lastname@example.org
Per Goltermann, RAMBOLL at email@example.com
Please feel free to forward the questionnaire to anybody, who may have an interest in the field of monitoring, assessment and control of bridges.
The questionnaire will also give you the opportunity to sign up as an observer in SAMCO, (observers receive information as newsletters, invitations etc. but have no obligations or responsibilities – contributions are, however, welcome).
Your input will be appreciated - and incorporated in “End-users requirement”, which you in return will receive in early 2003.
