IABMAS 2024 conference (June 2024, Copenhagen, Denmark)

Special session is titled: “SS 39 – Digital Enabled Asset Management of Major Bridges”. It will be part of the IABMAS 2024 conference, which will be held at the Tivoli Congress Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, in June 2024. This is the 12th edition of the International Conference on Bridge Maintenance, Safety and Management (IABMAS), and organized for the first time in Scandinavia.

Description of the session: The title “Digital Enabled Asset Management of Major Bridges” is pleasing both from the bridge owners, consultants and academic perspective. By leveraging digital technologies, asset managers can gain real-time insights into asset health, anticipate and prevent failures, and optimize maintenance schedules, leading to reduced downtime, increased asset longevity, and lower overall costs. However, the implementation of the process of using digital technologies to optimize the management of physical assets throughout their lifecycle, from design and procurement through to operation, maintenance, and decommissioning is not always straight-forward. The scope of this special session is to increase knowledge about the practical aspects of ensuring a successfully implementation of “Digital Enabled Asset Management of a Major Bridge” by bringing together bridge operators, consultants, maintenance teams, monitoring experts and academia.
