Load-carrying capacity, seismic performance and long-term durability of steel bridge structures are evaluated by experimental and analytical approaches.  Applicability of innovative materials like as FRP on bridge structures are investigated.  Repair, reinforcement and maintenance of steel structures by thermal technologies are proposed.
