Final Report - HP FUTURE-BRIDGE (High performance (cost competitive, long-life and low maintenance) composite bridges for rapid infrastructure renewal)

Project ID: 31522
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

The EU-funded HP FUTURE-BRIDGE project aimed to develop a new, high-performance and cost-effective concept for bridges construction based on the application of fabric-reinforced polymers (FRP). The concept was innovative, since it employed composite materials for large scale civil engineering applications.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project concept and objectives. Its structure in work packages and interrelated activities is also presented. Moreover, the document contains information on the developed designs and manufacture processes. The assessment of the proposal through the construction of two pilot bridges is analysed and recommendations for future research are pinpointed. Finally, the document summarises the undertaken activities for knowledge dissemination and further use.
