Inspection and evaluation of a network of concrete bridges based on multiple NDT techniques
Akgül, Ferhat (Informa UK Limited, 2020-07-01)
Bridge condition rating is a crucial variable used for prioritisation of bridge needs in bridge management systems (BMSs). At present, bridge rating is predominantly based on visual inspections. A practical method incorpor...
Time-variant reliability analysis incorporating multiple deterioration and live load models
Berenji, V. G.; Akgül, Ferhat (2016-10-20)
Bridge elements deteriorate with time due to exposure to different environmental attacks, distress mechanisms and live loads effects. In order to optimize the time-variant life-cycle costs or to obtain realistic time-varia...
