FASSTBRIDGE : FAST AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR STEEL BRIDGES LIFE-TIME EXTENSION
FASSTbridge aims at drastically reduce the economic and environmental costs of ownership of the steel bridges stock in Europe and the USA by providing a reliable preventive, cost-effective and sustainable solution for steel bridges life-time extension.
The FASSTbridge solution will stand on two pillars:
- FASSTbridge methodology: an easy-to-apply methodology (fatigue life-time assessment, design, execution and maintenance guideline) to prevent the evolution of irreversible fatigue derived problems at a pre-failure scenario, and
- FASSTbridge strengthening system: a reliable, cost-effective CFRP strengthening system to preventively extend life-time of steel bridges.
