Management of timber bridges in Australia is mostly carried out by local councils. Most councils need to make informed decisions based on visual inspections. However, these have been proven to be inadequate mainly due to the lack of scientific evaluation. This paper presents the results of Thermogravimetry (TGA) carried out on a case study bridge in the western region of Melbourne.
