Abstract

This research offers a new composite revamping method for railway bridges by assuming composite remodelling process of existing steel bridges having no specific fissure damages or serious corrosions and effectively making use of relatively new materials to it. Effects of noise reduction and improved stiffness were further confirmed through hammer impact tests (vibration measurement tests) and loading tests in order to prove the efficacy of the composite remodelling.
