Tests of the Crimean bridge before the final acceptance commission confirmed the reliability of load-bearing structures, as well as readiness for putting into permanent operation. This is reported today by Rosavtodor.
«The result of the diagnosis will be an assessment of the state of the bridge structure and the road. Such an assessment along with a conclusion on compliance with state supervision will be further considered by the acceptance committee from the representatives of the project’s customer, contractor, construction control and author supervision,» Yuri Safonov, the chief engineer of the PKU Uprdor» Taman» said.
The verdict of the acceptance commission will be the basis for commissioning the facility.
It should be noted that the testing of the Crimean bridge was carried out for several weeks. The main objective is to check the compliance with the safety requirements and the actual bearing capacity of the bridge structures to those parameters that were laid by its designers.
At the first stage, the key supporting structures, supports and spans were instrumentally examined. Further calculations were made to determine the stress-strain state of the structures. Also the object was subjected to static and dynamic tests. For the purity of the studies, experts have installed numerous sensors that fixed the reaction of the structures to the loads. The results confirmed the reliability of the bridge.
