This paper deals with the BRIDGE|50 research project aimed at investigating the residual structural performance of a 50-year-old concrete bridge recently dismantled in Italy. A group of 29 precast prestressed beams, including 25 I-beams and four box beams, and two pier caps has been placed in a testing site. The preliminary activities already developed and the planned experimental program are discussed. The project includes photographic mappings, drone surveys, non-destructive testing, full-scale load tests, and extraction of a large number of samples from the tested structural elements for laboratory tests.

Abstract

This paper deals with the BRIDGE|50 research project aimed at investigating the residual structural performance of a 50-year-old concrete bridge recently dismantled in Italy. A group of 29 precast prestressed beams, including 25 I-beams and four box beams, and two pier caps has been placed in a testing site. The preliminary activities already developed and the planned experimental program are discussed. The project includes photographic mappings, drone surveys, non-destructive testing, full-scale load tests, and extraction of a large number of samples from the tested structural elements for laboratory tests.
