Civil Engineering Seminar Report
Nowadays, a majority of structures (buildings and bridges) in service suffers from many drawbacks as the surroundingenvironment for which the structures have been designed is undergoing rapid changes. Reconstruction of roads has resulted in many buildings being at a lower elevation than the surrounding roads. Under certain circumstances, the bridge clearance may not be high enough to permit the larger cargo ships to pass through, or the elevation of newly built roads is higher than that of existing roads, which makes it difficult to link these roads smoothly. Other than demolishing and rebuilding these structures, there could be a better way to upgrade them by applying a reliable and economical method. Integral lifting and structural translocation can be employed to solve these problems.

Integral lifting is the method of lifting the whole structure as an integral unit. The present study also discusses the integral lifting of the Qifeng Bridge, an arch bridge over the Hu-Jia-Shen Channel located on the eastern coast of China, by a height of 2.5 m. Structural translocation is a technique to move an infrastructure from its original location to a new one, which is usually used to accommodate changes in city planning and preserve residential, commercial, and historic structures.
