Abstract [en]

Load testing is a way to control the capacity and function of a bridge. Methods and recommendations for load testing are described and examples are given form tests carried out. In order not to damage the bridge being tested, the load must be limited, often to be within the serviceability limit state (SLS). Numerical models can be calibrated by load tests and then be used to check the carrying capacity for higher loads than what has been tested. Need for further work and recommendations are discussed. By effective planning costs can be saved and a more sustainable use of bridges can be obtained.
