US Bridges In Danger Of Collapse | CNN, 1 July 2014
US bridges are in urgent need of repair and rehabilitation as they are aging. ASCE gives US infrastructure a D+ mark and estimates 1 out of 9 bridges are deficient. A catastrophic collapse not only puts people's life in danger, but also imposes hundreds of millions of dollars for repair and lost business. As an initial step, these bridges are required to be inspected accurately. Giatec has developed advanced solutions such as Giatec Cell, Giatec Inspex and Giatec iCOR that can assist engineers with efficient damage detection and analysis. This will help owners prioritize maintenance and repair schedules and budgets more effectively.
