With the purpose of international exchange of knowledge and experience, a Chinese delegation of nine participants from Tsinghua University, Central South University and China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group Co., Ltd visited the institute from 31.08.2019 to 03.09.2019. On the arrival day, a meeting concerning Quanzhou Bay Bridge in China was carried out in the office of MKP. A detailed discussion about the design, calculation, and construction of this new semi-integral bridge was the concentration of this meeting. On the second day, we visited several (semi-)integral bridges including the Stöbnitz Viaduct, Unstrut Viaduct, Gänsebach Viaduct and Scherkonde Viaduct on the new line from Leipzig to Ebensfeld. On the next day, we visited the Laboratory of Fatigue Tests and Test Centre for Support Structures (TTH) of LUH in Marienwerder Hannover. A workshop concerning different projects was held. In the afternoon, the delegation went to Stuttgart with the ICE to experience the German high-speed railway technology. Afterwards, we visited the construction site of the new Stuttgart Central Station. On the last day, an excursion to the construction site of Fils Viaduct, which is a semi-integral bridge on the new line from Stuttgart – Ulm, was carried out.
