Abstract [en]

The scope of this project is to perform Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) on different types of bridges, in order to learn which is most cost-efficient in a particular situation. A second scope is to study the impact of different cost items on the whole Life Cycle Cost. The work is performed to enable optimal strategic decisions regarding future investments.Beam and Slab Bridges, Slab Bridges and Slab Frame Bridges are analyzed. The bridges are located in the north of Sweden, in the regions of Norrbotten and Västerbotten. All bridges have a total length of around 20 m, which is the most common length in Sweden and in Europe. Furthermore, the analysis includes Timber and Soil-Steel bridges in order to understand the prospects for this types of bridges in Sweden. The analysis does not focus on a particular bridge but, based on information from some Swedish producers, it studies different scenarios.The data collection covers initial investments, maintenance, repair and rehabilitation (MR&R) costs, user and demolition costs.
