Internationell workshop om förstärkning av stål/samverkansbroar (Swedish)
The European infrastructure is rapidly aging, and steel/composite bridges are noexception to the rule. With thousands of older steel/composite bridges, there is ademand of rational methods to strengthen the older bridges to compensate not onlyfor their age, but also for higher loads and new codes, of which perhaps the newfatigue rules for highway bridges in EC3-2 will be the hardest to meet.Within the frames of the European R&D project Prolife (RFCS-CT-2015-00025) aworkshop was arranged in Stockholm September 28th 2015. Bridge owners,designers and researchers from 12 countries participated, and the similaritiesbetween the countries as well as the variety of technical solutions were highlighted.The contributions are presented in this report and the organizers want to thank allparticipants for making this seminar successful.
