The destructive and non-destructive test was carried out in term of concrete strength determination using coring, Schmidt hammer, carbonation test. The structural condition survey and
rating the slab type bridge also bridge load test at the area of Songkla was awarded to International Engineering Consutlants Co.,Ltd and Tesco Co.,Ltd. One of the most well-known non-destructive methods to evaluate the bridge structural capacity is called “Bridge Diagnostic” by attached the most accuracy strain gauge in the significant bridge element. This non-destructive test has been carried out for 8 selected bridge which various condition to ensure the capacity of bridges.
