BRIDGE STRENGTHENING WITH ADVANCED COMPOSITE SYSTEMS

It is becoming preferable, both environmentally and economically to upgrade bridges rather than to demolish and rebuild them. Deterioration of bridges wear from environmental influences and from traffic loads require rehabilitation and renewal programs to maintain even current service levels on the bridge infrastructure network. Demands for high durability, longer service life, reduced maintenance cost and cost/performance optimised. System solution have prompted a new look at Advanced Composite Systems. This paper presents the evolution of CarboDur Composite Systems from its start in 1991, relevant test reports for bridge engineering as well as their world-wide application.
