Experiences concerning structural assessment and strengthening of older bridges
While analysing current traffic volume on German highways, an exceedance of the planned bearing capacity for most of the highway bridges was detected. This exceedance is mainly caused by increasing daily traffic volume, including increasingly heavy trucks with a rising number of axes and load size. In fact, strengthening of most of these bridges becomes necessary to ensure future long-term serviceability of the German Autobahn system.
