Condition assessment and analysis of aged timber structure

AW Maritime assisted the Victorian Regional Channels Authority by completing a condition assessment and analysis of an aged timber structure to determine whether its residual capacity was sufficient to accommodate a small RoRo passenger ferry.  Our services included a visual inspection of the facility as well as managing load testing of the structure.  By assessing measured deflections and accelerations in combination with advanced structural analysis AW Maritime was able to demonstrate that there was sufficient capacity left in the structure to allow the ferry to be moored safely, thereby avoiding costly upgrade works.
