Abstract [en]

This report is one of the deliverables from the Integrated Research Project “Sustainable Bridges - Assessment forFuture Traffic Demands and Longer Lives” funded by the European Commission within its 6th Framework Programme. The Project aims to help European railways to meet increasing transportation demands, which can only be accommodated on the existing railway network by allowing the passage of heavier freight trains and faster passenger trains. This requires that the existing bridges within the network have to be upgraded without causing unnecessary disruption to the carriage of goods and passengers, and without compromising the safety and economy of the railways. A consortium, consisting of 32 partners drawn from railway bridge owners, consultants, contractors, research institutes and universities, has carried out the Project, which has a gross budget of more than 10 million Euros. The European Commission has provided substantial funding, with the balancing funding has been coming from the Project partners. Skanska Sverige AB has provided the overall co-ordination of the Project, whilst Luleå University of Technology has undertaken the scientific leadership. The Project has developed improved procedures and methods for inspection, testing, monitoring and condition assessment of railway bridges. Furthermore, it has developed advanced methodologies for assessing the safecarrying capacity of bridges and better engineering solutions for repair and strengthening of bridges that are found to be in need of attention.
