BRIDGE|50 is a research project aimed at investigating the residual structural performance of a 50-year-old concrete bridge recently dismantled in Italy. The research activity is carried out jointly by Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino and the project partners include several public authorities and private companies. The planned activities include a wide experimental campaign of non-destructive testing and full-scale load tests on a group of 29 prestressed beams and two pier caps moved and stored in a testing site. This paper provides an overview of the ongoing experimental activities and preliminary outcomes of the project.

Abstract

BRIDGE|50 is a research project aimed at investigating the residual structural performance of a 50-year-old concrete bridge recently dismantled in Italy. The research activity is carried out jointly by Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino and the project partners include several public authorities and private companies. The planned activities include a wide experimental campaign of non-destructive testing and full-scale load tests on a group of 29 prestressed beams and two pier caps moved and stored in a testing site. This paper provides an overview of the ongoing experimental activities and preliminary outcomes of the project.
