Niklas Bagge received his Ph.D. degree in June 2017 in the research area Structural Engineering at Luleå University of Technology. His research is focused on methods for structural assessment of existing concrete bridges with the aim to develop strategies practically applicable for efficient and reliable analyses of structural capacities. The research includes FE analyses on various levels of accuracy, safety verification using appropriete safety concepts, and verification of the methods based on destructive and non-destructive field testing of a decommissioned prestressed concrete bridge.
Niklas Bagge received his M.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering in 2011 and his Tech. Licentiate degree in 2014 at Luleå University of Technology. Niklas also has a position as Bridge Engineer in the Department of Bridge and Hydrailic Engineering at WSP Sverige AB.
