On July 5, 2018, a poster was presented at the 10th European Solid Mechanics Conference about the results of material tests carried out on GFRP samples at the University of Pisa:
- P. Fisicaro, P.S. Valvo, C. Borri (2018): Evaluation of the elastic stiffnesses of multi-directional laminates by bending tests, ESMC 2018 – 10th European Solid Mechanics Conference (Bologna, Italy, 2–6 July 2018).
On 23rd of May, we held a workshop at Chalmers University of Technology to present the final results of the project. We had 15 participants from Swedish Transport Administration, contractors, design offices and academia.
Press news about the SUREBridge project:
On November 6th, 2017, the SUREBridge project was illustrated at the 33rd International CAE Conference in Vicenza, Italy, where the following two papers were presented:
- P.S. Valvo, E. Davini, F. Ricci (2017): The European project SUREBridge – Analysis of laboratory test beams, CAE 2017 – 33rd International CAE Conference and Exhibition (Vicenza, Italy, 6–7 November 2017).
- P.S. Valvo, E. Davini, F. Ricci (2017): The European project SUREBridge – Analysis of a case study bridge, CAE 2017 – 33rd International CAE Conference and Exhibition (Vicenza, Italy, 6–7 November 2017).
On 1st of September, we had a workshop at Chalmers University of Technology to present some results of the project. We had about 12 participants from relevant stakeholders including representatives from Swedish transport Administration, a number of consultant offices including WSP and ÅF and contractors active in field of strengthening and repair of structures. The project was well received and we had a constructive dialogue with Swedish Transport Administration.
SUREBridge will hold a workshop on September the 1st at Chalmers University of Technology to introduce the SUREBridge concept and some of the results from experimental and numerical studies carried out.
