Life-Cycle Performance of Deteriorating Structures: Assessment, Design, and Management

This report contains 43 papers, including four keynote lectures and the statements and conclusions, covering a wide range of studies on life-cycle performance of deteriorating structures. Contributors include internationally recognized researchers and practicing engineers from the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Topics include: aging infrastructure; bridge management strategies; bridge scour; chloride ingress; civil infrastructures; concrete fatigue; condition assessment; condition indicators; condition, safety and cost analysis for deteriorated structures; corrosion and cracking of reinforced concrete; decision analysis; decision making under uncertainty' deterioration modeling of structures; expected utility; fatigue behavior; freezing-thawing and mechanical load effects; life quality index; life-cycle cost analysis; life-cycle performance; life assessment; maintenance planning optimization; maintenance strategies; management of structures; material quality; optimum design of bridges; performance updating; policy strategies for hazards; probabilistic performance of structures; reliability of deteriorating structures; remote sensing and monitoring; renewal models; restoration of bridges; risk analysis; risk-based safety evaluation; safety levels and service life; service-life prediction; steel corrosion; stochastic simulation; structural health monitoring structural rehabilitation; and structural reliability.
