SAMCO Final Report 2006 F09 Report on Bridge Management

1

INTRODUCTION

The SAMCO network covers all the relevant the fields of structural assessment, monitoring and control as a part of the bridge management. The network includes a total of 9 workpackages, where WP 9 deals with Practical Bridge Management. The task 9.1 deals with the End-users needs and the present report constitutes one of the deliverables and describes essentially the End-users requirements to monitoring and control of the structures.

The report describes first the EU infrastructure with costs and traffic growth, then gives a brief description of the bridges with age, factors affecting the performance and the resulting needs for management, monitoring and increased knowledge. This is followed by a brief State-of-the-Art in the bridge management and an overview of the different national approaches and traditions, which currently prevents a stan- dardisation. The report rounds of with a presentation of the resulting end-users needs as well as the criterias for interfacing monitoring and control with the bridge man- agement.
