Resum
During the past decade, new codes for the assessment of existing bridges have been developed in Canada, the USA, as well as the UK, Denmark, and Switzerland. The practical application of these codes proved to be successful as they allowed for keeping in operation many bridges that no longer met the design criteria but were otherwise able to safely carry the applied loads. Because of the success of the national codes, the possibility of developing a new Eurocode for Bridge Safety Assessment is un...
