CANADA'S ADVANCED NATIONAL STANDARD ON BRIDGE EVALUATION. BRIDGE MANAGEMENT. INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE, ASSESSMENT AND REPAIR. PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON BRIDGE MANAGEMENT, UNIVERSITY OF SURREY, GUILDFORD, MARCH 28-30, 1990

In the last decade, efforts have been made in Canada to identify with more accuracy than before, the maintenance requirements of Canadian bridges. A simple step by step procedure is utilized to establish a bridge evaluation code. The safety index is identified as a function of the expected behaviour of a member and the consequences of its failure. Load factors reflect the confidence with which the loads can be predicted. The work is illustrated utilizing the Pelly River Bridge at Faro in the Yukon Territory. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 830553.
