Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Oliver Fischer (Concrete Structures) on whether old bridges last longer than expected


Prof. Ernst Rank and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for coffee each Wednesday! Just come over to the TUM-IAS after lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. and have a coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen from time to time to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.

On December 20, 2017, Prof. Oliver Fischer (Concrete Structures) will talk about how engineers test the load bearing capacities of older bridges at the Saale bridge in Hammelburg, Bavaria. The aim is to resolve a contradiction between the theoretical and the actual load bearing capacity.
