abstract
Many concrete bridges show significant damage due to corrosion of the reinforcing or prestressing steel. In recent years it is investigated how composite reinforcement can serve as an alternative for steel. In this project it will be investigated how the lower part of the bridge deck can be assembled from composite sandwichpanels and this in combination with a concrete deck slab.
