Synopsis:

The subject prepares the students for the holistic design for designing steel and composite bridges during the whole life.

The corrosion and deterioration will be included, together with the methods of the refurbishment of steel bridges. Special

focus will be given to the FRP design.

1. The design of large span bridges

2. Bridges for the high speed railways

3. Fatigue

4. Residual life time of bridges from the fatigue perspective

5. Diagnostics and assessment of steel bridges

6. Strengthening of steel bridges with composites

7. Strengthening of steel bridges with prestressing

8. Advanced erection technologies

9. Holistic approach to the design of steel bridges, LCC, LCA
