Weidatalbrücke (RFB Göttingen) (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
The testing of external tendons is one of the focal points. With a test matrix, the test methods are compiled in the course of the main test and, in the event of anomalies, also as part of an object-related damage analysis, and a recommendation for the scope of the test is given. The examination includes a visual examination of the anchorages, the tendons and deflections as well as an endoscopic examination of the anchorage area and the deflections. Furthermore, a gradient measurement of the superstructure, a tensioning force determination via frequency measurement, magnetic inductive tendon testing, an ultrasonic test of the tendon anchorages, a tensioning force zero measurement with the frequency method, an inclinometer measurement and a geodetic measurement were carried out. A test matrix summarizes the recommended test methods, the scope of tests and the frequency of tests on the external tendons of the Weidatal Bridge as a supplement to DIN 1076.
