Abstract: This deliverable reports on the outputs of eight Early Stage Researchers (ESR7-ESR14) in work package, WP5 (Rail and Road Infrastructure), under the supervision of academic and industrial experts during the three years of their projects within the EU TRUSS (Training in Reducing Uncertainty in Structural Safety, 2015-2018) Innovative Training Network (ITN) programme ( Two types of infrastructure are analysed in WP5: bridges (ESR7-ESR12) and pavements (ESR13-ESR14). The first six projects aim to reduce uncertainty in bridge safety. They address areas of work such as bridge condition assessment (ESR7), probabilistic modelling of bridge damage using damage indicators (ESR8), railway bridge condition monitoring and fault diagnostics (ESR9), condition assessment based on measured vibration level (ESR10), the use of optical fibre distributed sensing for monitoring (ESR11), and the use of displacement and velocity measurements for damage localisation (ESR12). The last two projects are on uncertainty in pavement safety, where ESR13 considers the use of truck sensors for road pavement performance and asset management and ESR14 investigates the possibility of using unmanned aerial vehicles and photogrammetry method for road and bridge inspections. Generally, the areas of work developed in this work package are vehicle-infrastructure interaction, traffic load modelling, road materials, uncertainty modelling, reliability analysis, field measurement and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of bridges.
