With over a hundred delegates, this year’s Third International Bridge Seminar demonstrated the continuing interest and commitment to the dynamic field of bridge engineering and construction. Experts, professors, academics and researchers from the field took part and observed the latest technology and techniques in bridge design and construction. This day-long event also gave the opportunity for speakers, attendants, organizers and sponsors to network and share their experiences and knowledge.

Presentation lectures from the seminar are now posted below for free downloading. Tutorials on staged construction with midas Civil, a technical document of an extradosed bridge, and MIDAS brochures and videos are also available for download as well. Online membership is required (membership is free) .
