International workshop on strengthening of steel/composite bridges: Stockholm, September 28, 2015

The European infrastructure is rapidly aging, and steel/composite bridges are no exception to the rule. With thousands of older steel/composite bridges, there is a demand of rational methods to strengthen the older bridges to compensate not only for their age, but also for higher loads and new codes, of which perhaps the new fatigue rules for highway bridges in EC3-2 will be the hardest to meet. Within the frames of the European R&D project Prolife (RFCS-CT-2015-00025) a workshop was arranged in Stockholm September 28th 2015. Bridge owners, designers and researchers from 12 countries participated, and the similarities between the countries as well as the variety of technical solutions were highlighted. The contributions are presented in this report.
