Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results from three tests to failure of different types of bridges: a two span reinforced concrete railway trough bridge; a five-span prestessed concrete beam bridge; and a one span metal railway truss bridge. The results show that the capacity of the structures are underestimated by current standards, while numerical analysis combined with material testing can provide more accurate results. Some examples are also presented on how deficiencies incapacity can be mitigated using fiber reinforced polymer strengthening systems.
