The demand for higher load carrying capacity of existing bridges on road and rail networks is increasing. Application of new and efficient methods for determining higher capacity could result in lower cost for strengthening and replacement of bridges. These new methods comprises, advanced elastic and plastic limit state 3D-methods alone or in combination with probability-based safety assessment methods. The workshop will focus on experience and cases obtained and implemented on actual bridges for Road and Rail owners.
Need for higher load carrying capacity for rail/road bridges
