Timber Bridge Webinar Series – Restoring Structural Integrity of Covered Bridge Members
October 14, 2014 – 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Welcome to Timber Bridge Tuesdays Sept 9th – Oct 14th! We will be covering various topics related to timber bridge technology in a series of 6 weekly Webinars.
Join at 8 am Pacific, 9 am Mountain, 10 am Central, 11 am Eastern
Covered bridge members are sometimes compromised by decay, insect attack, or a range of non-biologic factors. Although information is available on methods of inspecting covered bridges, few resources are available to guide decisions once a problem is detected. Assuming the cause of degradation is addressed, a decision still must be made as to whether the member can continue to function without corrective action, or how it can be repaired, reinforced or replaced while retaining the maximum amount of historic fabric. This webinar will include an overview of the role of covered bridge assessment and engineering analysis prior to considering repair options, means of implementing effective repairs while retaining historic character, and the practicality and long-term durability of repair options.
Ron Anthony received an MS in Wood Science and Technology and a BS in Forest Management and Wood Science and Technology from Colorado State University. Prior to forming Anthony & Associates in 1999, he conducted research and consulted on wood properties and the use of wood in construction applications. His efforts have led to applications of resistance drilling and digital radioscopy for assessing structural timbers and investigating hidden conditions. Author of over 100 publications, Ron has consulted throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the South Pacific. He is a member of the Association for Preservation Technology International, Timber Framers Guild and Timber Frame Engineering Council, Society of Wood Science and Technology, and Forest Products Society, and serves on the Executive Committee for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Technical Council on Forensic Engineering.
