  • ERI Begins Structural Repairs to Local Poultry Processing Plant

    in Specialized Concrete Placement with 0 comment(s)

    In July of 2011, Engineered Restorations, Inc. was contacted by an engineering firm which they had worked with on several prior projects. A site visit was requested and made under what was considered an emergency condition.

    Leaking water and various chemicals from a poultry processing plant had caused extreme reinforcement corrosion and, in turn, serious deterioration of the precast members and framework in a large storage and breezeway area under a portion of the plant. Of utmost...

    The magnitude-5.8 earthquake that rattled most of the eastern U.S. on Aug. 25 created new cracks and spalling in the upper sections of the 555-ft, 5-in.-tall Washington Monument in the nation's capital. While the extent of quake-related damage was not a surprise, the size of several spalls was larger than expected, says a forensic engineer who conducted an inspection for the U.S. National Park Service.

    The survey team of Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates Inc., Northbrook, Ill.,...

Repairs to the bridge began the following week with an estimated completion date of Sept. 26, 2011.

    “We want to thank the residents and local commuters for their patience as we provided the needed maintenance, and we’re pleased to be able to reopen ahead...

    Bridge destruction to reveal clues about 'fracture-critical' spans

    WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. — A civil engineer at Purdue University is taking advantage of the demolition of a bridge spanning the Ohio River to learn more about how bridges collapse in efforts to reduce the annual cost of inspecting large spans. "There is a whole family of bridges called fracture-critical," said Robert J. Connor, an associate professor of civil engineering. "This means that if an important tension member breaks, it's thought the bridge will fall down." However, modern analysis...
