Bridge management in Turkey: a BMS design with customised functionalities
Akgül, Ferhat (2016-05-03)
The overall design and customised functionalities of a bridge management system (BMS), developed in Turkey in 2009-2013 period (the so-called KYS), are presented. The novel design features are explained. Development of the web-based BMS involved the establishment of a bridge inventory database, a detailed multi-layer cost database with an itemised unit cost breakdown capability, inventory management, cost and planning modules, optimal allocation of maintenance-repair-replacement (MR&R) budgets while produci...
Bridge rating and reliability correlation: Comprehensive study for different bridge types
Akgül, Ferhat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2004-01-01)
Accumulation of research in the field of bridge evaluation based on structural reliability justifies the consideration of reliability index as the primary measure of safety for bridges. Furthermore, the lifetime bridge evaluation techniques are being mostly based on reliability methods. Currently, bridge safety is measured in terms of the rating factor, which reflects the live load capacity of the structure. In order to investigate the reliability index of an existing bridge and to consider its relation to ...

Bridge scour risk assessment and countermeasure design
Yanmaz, Ali Melih (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2012-08-01)
Statistical surveys conducted on investigation of reasons of bridge failures implied that the majority of bridges have failed because of excessive scouring at infrastructural elements. A bridge crossing an alluvial river should therefore be designed properly with special reference to possibility of this action at piers and abutments. On construction of a bridge, its scour criticality should be examined regularly throughout the service life spans to take necessary actions promptly. The Federal Highway Admini...
