Lifetime condition prediction for bridges
Bayrak, Hakan; Akgül, Ferhat; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
Infrastructure systems are crucial facilities. They supply the necessary transportation, water and energy utilities for the public. However, while aging, these systems gradually deteriorate in time and approach the end of their lifespans. As a result, they require periodic maintenance and repair in order to function and be reliable throughout their lifetimes. Bridge infrastructure is an essential part of the transportation infrastructure. Bridge management systems (BMSs), used to monitor the condition and s...

Classification of bridge damages and costs for optimal maintenance planing based on markov decision process
Aslzad, Reza; Akgül, Ferhat; Department of Engineering Sciences (2016)
Serviceability of a bridge is gradually reduced over time due to loads they carry andthe environmental effects. The effect of deterioration on bridges begin to appear when the bridges start aging and the materials are subjected to constant wear. Traffic loadings, weather and environmental factors, quality of construction, natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, are important factors that affect the degree and rate of deterioration of a bridge. Therefore, appropriate management is needed for bridg...
Development of the bridge management system for Turkey by introducing a condition rating model based on damage types
Masoumi, Faraz; Akgül, Ferhat; Department of Engineering Sciences (2014)
The decisions regarding the maintenance, repair and replacement of bridges in developed countries are being made using databases and programs built on scientific and technical knowledge. The computer programs that are developed for this purpose are referred to as Bridge Management Systems (BMS; KYS in Turkish). The main function of a Bridge Management System is to keep the maintenance, repair and replacement costs of bridges at an optimum level throughout the bridge lifetime, to continuously sustain the saf...
Effect of vehicular and seismic loads on the performance of integral bridges
Erhan, Semih; Dicleli, Murat; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
Integral bridges (IBs) are defined as a class of rigid frame bridges with a single row of piles at the abutments cast monolithically with the superstructure. In the last decade, IBs have become very popular in North America and Europe as they provide many economical and functional advantages. However, standard design methods for IBs have not been established yet. Therefore, most bridge engineers depend on the knowledge acquired from performance of previously constructed IBs and the design codes developed fo...
