Concrete Trough Bridges on the Iron Ore Railway Line (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
In a research program, loads and deflections were monitored on four bridges along the line. One bridge, that had been taken out of service, was transported to Luleå University of Technology. It was there tested in fatigue with the planned axle load.
