Lecture by Dr. K.M. Amanat

UBC Visiting Prof. Khan Mahmud Amanat (Prof., Dept. of Civil Eng., Bangladesh University of Engineering & Tech, Dhaka) delivered a lecture on August 20th, 2013 in EME 1123 about† the repair of Cracks in the Bangabandhu Jamuna Bridge, Bangladesh. Dr. Amanat is a highly knowledgeable researcher who has just joined Dr. Alamís research group as a Visiting Professor and Common Wealth Scholar at UBCís Okanagan campus. Short abstract about his lecture is provided below:

Short Abstract: Bangabandhu Jamuna Bridge is a 4.8km long concrete box girder bridge built in 1998 over the Jamuna river. It is the only road and rail link between the north-west part and the other parts of Bangladesh. In 2006 and later, numerous longitudinal cracks were observed on the deck of the bridge. Investigation showed that there had been a design inadequacy which caused the development of cracks. Repair of cracks started in 2011 and has been finished in June 2013 at a cost of US $35 million (approx.). The repair work has been a one-of-kind work manifesting an excellent example of modern engineering. The presentation shall cover identification of the causes of cracks as well as the unique repair technique and procedure adopted for the bridge and related issues. The participants of the lecture shall have an in-sight into a most modern, technically challenging and one of the most extensive bridge repair works in the world done recently.
