Abstract

This paper summarizes some of the previous work on optimal bridge maintenance planning and presents new developments. The optimization process is reliability- and cost-oriented. The purpose is to optimize lifetime maintenance expenditures associated with bridge stocks. The degradation of the reliability of individual bridges and the present value of future maintenance costs are both considered in this process. Numerical examples illustrate different aspects of the optimal bridge maintenance planning approach.
