Degradation of Steel Footbridges with Neglected Inspection and Maintenance

Upon representative case studies, the paper illustrates the importance of management, maintenance and reconstruction of steel footbridges. Particularly, inspection importance for timely discovering imperfections, potentially reducing safety and load carrying capacity is illustrated by investigations of actually affected common structural systems. The paper presents a summary of the findings and conclusions from diagnostic investigations of seven steel footbridges. Focus is paid to the corrosion of structural steel and its influence on overall condition of footbridge structures.
