Risk-based management of the bridge stock

In the past, the Technical Committee 4.3 Road bridges reviewed the bridge management systems implemented in several countries and advised a revision of the management of bridges based on risks (Management of bridge stock 2011 - report ISBN 2-84060-238-5).

This report aims to provide some answers with respect to risk-based management for bridges.

It discusses the integration of risk-based analyses into the bridge management systems of several countries and gives examples of formal methods of risk-based analyses on certain types of structures (pre-stressed concrete bridges, barriers, wind barriers) or hazards (earthquake, wind, scour, climate change).
