Papers presented at the Third International Association for Bridge Maintenance and Safety Workshop on Life-Cycle Cost Analysis and Design of Civil Infrastructure Systems and at the Joint Committee on Structural Safety Workshop on Probabilistic Modeling of Deterioration Processes in Concrete Structures, held in Lausanne, Switzerland, March 24-26, 2003.
This report contains 43 papers, including four keynote lectures and the statements and conclusions, covering a wide range of studies on life-cycle performance of deteriorating structures. Contributors include internationally recognized researchers and practicing engineers from the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe.
Topics include: aging infrastructure; bridge management strategies; bridge scour; chloride ingress; civil infrastructures; concrete fatigue; condition assessment; condition indicators; condition, safety and cost analysis for deteriorated structures; corrosion and cracking of reinforced concrete; decision analysis; decision making under uncertainty’ deterioration modeling of structures; expected utility; fatigue behavior; freezing-thawing and mechanical load effects; life quality index; life-cycle cost analysis; life-cycle performance; life assessment; maintenance planning optimization; maintenance strategies; management of structures; material quality; optimum design of bridges; performance updating; policy strategies for hazards; probabilistic performance of structures; reliability of deteriorating structures; remote sensing and monitoring; renewal models; restoration of bridges; risk analysis; risk-based safety evaluation; safety levels and service life; service-life prediction; steel corrosion; stochastic simulation; structural health monitoring structural rehabilitation; and structural reliability.
