Towards an Indicator of the Health Condition of Bridges

The survey was carried out to clarify the present conditions and trends of the management of bridges currently in service by collecting knowledge and information on bridge management in various countries. The results of the survey can then be used to improve inspection and diagnosis techniques. The survey questionnaires were given to various countries, and seventeen countries responded (Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA -NJ-). The survey was completed on the basis of the data collected. This report presents results of the survey and information obtained and provides a proposal on the direction and issues for bridge management in the future.
