RELIABILITY BASED BRIDGE MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES

In order to measure and maintain the reliability of the bridge-stock in respect of the multi-objective requirements, it is necessary to adopt a management process which is capable of addressing a number of objectives in an explicit manner. The Highways Agency is currently developing such a methodology, based on a strategic R&D programme. A number of the new procedures are now ready for trial, which will start in the near future, and others are under development. The purpose of this paper is to describe in outline the significant aspects of these procedures. For the covering abstract see ITRD E106406.
