Industrial bridge building- An effective bridge construction process through an integrated design and construction process
Paper in proceedings, 2014

This PhD-project aims to develop and industrialise bridge building, in order to achieve a more efficient and sustainable bridge construction process. The advancements of several key areas - materials science and technology, design and analysis methods, production techniques and information and communication technology - have resulted in a vast potential to rationalise the process and renew the designer's role. Initially, the project will define effective bridge construction criteria’s by means of interviews and case-studies. The work should result in an integrated design and production process. This project is a collaborative project, involving: Swedish Transport Administration, WSP and Chalmers.
