Scientific Programme

The scientific focus of the Action is centred in the production of a guideline for the establishment of QC plans for roadway bridges across Europe. In this context, this Action deals with recent developments on bridge safety, maintenance and management, according to a life-cycle outlook, aiming to define a standardized procedure for performance assessment as well as for the establishment of performance goals in order to accomplish a pre-specified service level. Moreover, it is intended to demonstrate the applicability of developed guideline, and other recommendations, with case studies.
