The Bridge Engineering Institute Conference in 2019 (BEI-2019) was a major forum in bridge engineering (civil infrastructure). Over 200 delegates attended the event and quality presentations were made on various topics from materials to in-situ performance of highway bridges. Selected papers from BEI-2019 are published herein.
