The first training week is held at BAM in Berlin from the 27th until the 31st of March 2017. It puts emphasis on the current state-of-the-art and best practices.

Basic scientific skills:

  • Physics of NDT techniques (BAM)
  • Probability theory (IFSTTAR)
  • Extreme value probabilitic theory (IFSTTAR)
  • Uncertainty management: a global frame for engineering (PHIMECA)
  • Structural reliability methods (AAU)
  • Uncertainty modelling in structural engineering (PHIMECA)

Advanced scientific skills:

  • Current practice in monitoring (NeoStrain)
  • Current practice in NDT (IFSTTAR)
  • Practical trainings at the NDT test and validation centre of BAM at BAM-TTS/Horstwalde (BAM)
  • Monitoring and NDT techniques for geometrical and material characterization (BAM)
  • Assessment of existing steel and composite bridges in fatigue, deterministic and probabilistic approaches (IFSTTAR)
  • Assessment of extreme wind and traffic loads (IFSTTAR)
  • Fatigue and fracture of reinforced concrete structures (EPFL)
  • Understanding structural behaviour by means of load testing in the laboratory and on existing structures (EPFL)
  • Conception, building and monitoring of an orthotropic steel bridge - Case of the Millau Viaduct (EIFFAGE)

Complementary skills:
