  • ***Online Meeting*** South and West Wales Section Meeting - Heat Straightening of Impact Damaged Structures
  • Andrew Wilson
  • Heat Straightening of Impact Damaged Structures (Julian Mason, Director,  Engineering Integration Ltd)

    • Heat straightening is based in the principle of partially constraining the material expansion during heating while allowing unrestrained contraction during cooling.
    • It’s a versatile process for repair of impact damaged and misaligned steel bridges and other structures, at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
    • The first use of Heat Straightening in the UK to realign impact damaged bridge structures was in 2000, on the severely impact damaged M5 New Road Overbridge, near Bridgewater. The recommendations of the FHWA were followed and the repair proved to be very successful. Subsequently around 35 impact damaged bridges around the UK have been realigned by the heat-straightening process, and Engineering Integration Ltd’s staff have been involved in more than half. All of the realigned structures have been highway bridges. To date no UK railway bridges have been repaired.
