Bridge Design toward Improved Inspection and Maintenance

Bridges need to be designed so that they can be efficiently and effectively inspected and maintained during its lifetime. This requires that the aspects of inspections and maintenance are given adequate consideration in the design phase and not treated as an afterthought. All elements of a bridge must be designed such that one is able to inspect and maintain them, as well as to consider elements of the bridge that will need replacing during its lifetime.
