Paper Title:
Service Life of European and American Bridges
  Abstract

The short service life of bridges exerts a negative influence on the operation. The service life of European and American bridges and maintenance is illustrated in this paper. A lot experience has been accumulated which also provide enough data to understand the problem. Some examples are listed in the paper. These data and analysis are of important reference value to understand the bridges in service and the actual service life at present in China.
