Brief Description of Research ProjectThe main objective of this project is to establish an effective life-cycle bridge management framework for novel intervention actions based on high-performance construction materials. This objective will be primarily achieved by (a) risk-based ranking of bridge criticality, (b) life-cycle risk assessment of bridges repaired with high-performance construction materials, and (c) risk-informed service life extension considering operational dependency of intervention actions.
