Description
Proceedings of the First U.S.–Japan Workshop on Life-Cycle Cost Analysis and Design of Civil Infrastructure Systems, held in Honolulu, Hawaii, August 7-8, 2000. Sponsored by the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE.

This collection contains 18 papers covering a wide range of studies on life-cycle cost analysis, design, maintenance and management of civil infrastructure systems. The contributors are internationally recognized researchers and practicing structural engineers from the United States, Japan, and Europe.

Topics include:

  • conceptual design of structural systems;
  • time-variant reliability of structures;
  • structural health monitoring and symptom-based reliability;
  • monitoring and testing for fatigue prediction;
  • lifetime reliability profiles for fatigue and corrosion;
  • maintenance planning for road pavements and structures;
  • maintenance planning of reinforced concrete decks;
  • bridge management systems;
  • optimized and conventional bridges;
  • optimal planning of maintenance and inspection;
  • life-cycle cost assessment for bridge maintenance;
  • specifications to aid life-cycle cost analyses;
  • maintenance cost of deteriorating civil infrastructures;
  • probabilistic models of cost for management of existing structures; and
  • user cost and its applications to bridge management systems.

This book will be valuable to engineers and managers involved with life-cycle costing of civil infrastructure systems.
