Competitive steel and composite bridges by innovative steel plate structures

Short description

Within the RFCS research project ComBri essential knowledge has been assembled to enhance the competitiveness of steel and composite bridges. This Type 2 project aims at the promotion of these results not only to reach a wider audience but also to assure the application of the outcomes. Two design manuals including worked examples and conceptual design issues were presented in the frame of seminars and workshops to contribute to a better understanding and assessment of the knowledge gained. An implementation of the knowledge in a future revision of Eurocode or in national application documents have been prepared in order to create a common basis allowing all the benefits for European designers, manufacturers and bridge owners.
