Life-Cycle Maintenance Management Framework for Concrete Bridge Elements

Authors: Yang, Yingnan, Kumaraswamy, Mohan M., Xie, Hongming

  • This book is proposed to extend the current knowledge in BMSs by considering non-periodical inspection as well, whereas previous reported research focused on periodical inspection alone
  • The book not only discusses the models and approaches commonly used in BMSs, but also discusses the applicability and limitations of these models and approaches, which is the issue of common concern for bridge maintenance management engineers and scholars
  • Research about BMSs is mainly carried out in developed countries, e.g. USA, and European countries. The life-cycle maintenance management framework developed in this book based on the region-specific nature of the available condition data and identified priorities that addressed the outlined needs and potentials, provide references to some local BMSs which will be developed

About this book

'Life-cycle Maintenance Management Framework for Medium and Short-Span Concrete Bridge Elements' describes a set of performance prediction and maintenance optimization models and approaches for life-cycle bridge maintenance management. These are proposed by summarizing and incorporating valuable aspects of previous practices and developing some new models and approaches for different and comprehensive scenarios. The subject of this book is cross-disciplinary, covering bridge engineering and management science. This includes a set of performance prediction models that are proposed to extend the current knowledge by incorporating non-periodical inspections, as well, whereas most of the previously reported research has focused on periodical inspections. Researchers will also find the models presented in this book useful for optimizing the targeted balance between technical and economical considerations.

This work is intended for those researchers and engineers in the field of bridge maintenance management who expect more effort devoted to transferring new procedures, methods, and tools into practice by addressing relevant problems, to better utilizing more pertinent data, and to explicitly addressing barriers to practical implementation. They will find the potential modeling and prediction enhancements useful in improving bridge maintenance decision making.

Yingnan Yang, lecturer, works at Zhejiang University.

About the authors

Dr. Yang was invited to present a technical lecture at 5th International Engineering and Construction Conference (IECC’5) held in Irvine, California in August 27-28, 2008. The title of the paper is “Proposed Framework of Performance Prediction Models for Concrete Bridges in Hong Kong.” Dr. Yingnan Yang got her Ph.D degree from the University of Hong Kong in 2009. She has published many journal papers in Journal of Transportation Engineering, Journal of Management in Engineering, Facilities, Journal of Infrastructure Systems.
