Holistic approach to sustainability of bridges

Holistic approach to sustainability of bridges Bridges are of vital importance for the European infrastructure network. Due to their significance in the political economy, the requirement for sustainable, meaning highly advanced, cost‐effective, environmentally friendly and long‐lived structures is outstanding. Therefore steel composite road bridges were analysed in the Sustainable Steel‐Composite Bridges in Built Environment RFCS project (SBRI) by means of a holistic approach combining Lifecycle Assessment, Lifecycle Costs and Lifecycle Performance analyses to promote steel in the bridge construction. The partners of the project were the Institute of Structural Design Universität Stuttgart, Universidade Coimbra, Institut français des sciences et technologies des transports, de l'aménagement et des réseaux, BRISA Engenharia e Gestão SA and ArcelorMittal. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Steel Construction: Design and Research Wiley

Abstract

Bridges are of vital importance for the European infrastructure network. Due to their significance in the political economy, the requirement for sustainable, meaning highly advanced, cost‐effective, environmentally friendly and long‐lived structures is outstanding. Therefore steel composite road bridges were analysed in the Sustainable Steel‐Composite Bridges in Built Environment RFCS project (SBRI) by means of a holistic approach combining Lifecycle Assessment, Lifecycle Costs and Lifecycle Performance analyses to promote steel in the bridge construction. The partners of the project were the Institute of Structural Design Universität Stuttgart, Universidade Coimbra, Institut français des sciences et technologies des transports, de l'aménagement et des réseaux, BRISA Engenharia e Gestão SA and ArcelorMittal.
