Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete bridges -- material properties and their influence on structural behaviour of concrete bridges. Influence of structural system change during bridge construction on stress state of concrete bridges. Basic structural systems shape and main dimensions of bridge decks -- slab bridges, girder bridges, frame bridges, arch bridges and cable-stayed bridges. Bridge prefabrication. Design of slender piers. Seismic and wind action on bridges. Repair, reconstruction and rehabilitation of concrete bridges.
Course contents:

- Typical structures of concrete bridges
- Technologies for construction of concrete bridges
- Structural behaviour of concrete bridges regarding of construction procedure and type of bearing structure.
- Seismic and wind action on bridges
- Design of substructure -- slender piers
- Bridge management -- repair, reconstruction, rehabilitation of concrete bridges
