Life-cycle structural performance assessment framework for concrete bridges

This project aims to develop a framework for the assessment of the structural performance life-cycle of concrete bridges. The service life of bridges depends on various factors including concrete mix design, quality control during construction, environmental and loading conditions. The project will bridge the ‘information gap’ between traffic loading and effects on the progressive deterioration of concrete bridges, in conjunction with the development of innovative inspection techniques to optimise longevity and safety.
