BRIDGE MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND METHODOLOGIES

This paper examines the objectives of bridge management in terms of risks to bridges and concludes that an effective management system needs to consider all potential risk factors. Since the currently available computer-based systems are primarily aimed at prioritising maintenance work on the basis of faults and deterioration alone, it is considered necessary to develop the methods further to cover other risks such as those arising from inadequate original design requirements.
