Abstract : Generally bridges are more exposed to severe environmental conditions than any other structures which deteriorate bridges during their serviceable life and reduce its serviceable life period . This continuous process of deterioration could lead to failure of the bridge. This induces the timely inspection or assessment of the bridge. Also most of bridges are designed for slow speed,limited traffic volume than its current utilisation. Since the environmental conditions and deterioration process goes on in its serviceable life this affects the performance of bridge. All these factors induce the need of inspection of bridge. This paper focus on the visual inspection of the concrete bridge,tools required,and things we have to visually inspect during inspection of a concrete bridge.
