Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The paper presents the first steps of the development of a theoretical framework for a rational yet practical decision making process concerning the condition assessment of existing bridges in Sweden. The main focus is on how to choose the appropriate level of enhanced conditions assessment considering aspects of model sophistication, uncertainty consideration and knowledge content utilisation. A conceptual case study is presented exemplifying how the framework can be used to structure the assessment actions of a steel bridge subjected to fatigue deterioration
