RELIABILITY BASED REASSESSMENT OF AN EXISTING CONCRETE BRIDGE - A CASE STUDY

A rational framework for reliability based reassessment is suggested and illustrated through the reassessment of an existing concrete motorway bridge subject to increased traffic loading. In this case where traditional approaches for reassessment indicated that strengthening of the bridge with an estimated cost of MECU 5 was necessary, the use of the suggested reassessment framework revealed that no strengthening of the bridge was necessary at all.
