Abstract

This paper presents the proposed bridge maintenance method and the developed program establishing a lifetime optimum maintenance strategy of a deteriorating bridge considering the lifetime performance and the life-cycle cost. The optimum maintenance scenario can be generated not only at the individual member level but also at the system level of the bridge by taking account of the subordinate relation due to the replacement of member. This paper discusses the generation of system level maintenance strategy considering the members which consist of the bridge as well as the optimum maintenance strategy in the member level, and studies more practical and rational method through the comparison of analytical examples between different levels. The optimum maintenance scenario is selected on the basis of the performance and cost of the bridge system by considering the subordinate relation.
