Abstract [en]

To calibrate methods for condition assessment of prestressed concrete (PC) bridges, tests are planned for a 50 year old five-span bridge with a length of 121 m in Kiruna in northern Sweden. Both non-destructive and destructive full-scale tests will be performed. This paper summarises the test programme, which comprises evaluation of the structural behaviour of the bridge, the residual forces in the prestressed steel, methods for strengthening using carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) and the shear resistance of the bridge slab.
