The Castle Group exhibited at the 5th International Conference on Bridge Maintenance, Safety and Management on July 11-15th in Philadelphia, PA at the Loews Hotel. The conference was hosted by the ATLSS Engineering Research Center at Lehigh University and covered all aspects of bridge maintenance, safety and management including life-cycle optimization, advanced materials, ageing of bridges, assessment and evaluation, bridge codes and diagnostics, management and security as well as many other pertinent topics.
The exhibits were coupled with a very in-depth scientific program consisting of keynote lectures, mini-symposia and special sessions. Bill Castle of W.J. Castle, P.E. & Associates was invited to present his paper, “Rehabilitative Design/Build of a Railroad Bridge” discussing W.J. Castle, P.E. & Associates, P.C.’s Roebling Bridge Rehabilitation at Special Session 24: Steel Bridge Rehabilitation on Tuesday, July 13th. All proceedings from the IABMAS2010 Conference were compiled into a published volume, “Bridge Maintenance, Safety, Management and Life-Cycle Optimization,” including Mr. Castle’s paper.
