Abstract [en]

A recent survey  showed that 40% of existing rail network bridges in Europe are masonry arches. More than 60% of those bridges are over 100 years old and still carry ever increasing levels of loading and increasing volumes of traffic. Due to the constantly increasing weight of rail traffic there is increasing demand for better understanding of their life expectancy and fatigue limits. It is imperative that the bridge stock is not adversely affected by these changes in the loading regime and that appropriate assessment, modelling, repair and strengthening techniques are available.

This background document is an attempt to address and solve the above questions.To this end, the document is divided in the following parts:

D4.7.1 Structural assessment of masonry arch bridges

D4.7.2 Numerical analyses of load distribution and deflections in railway bridge transitionzones due to passing trains

D4.7.3 Methods of analysis of damaged masonry arch bridges

D4.7.4 Potentiality of probabilistic methods in the assessment of masonry arches
