Risk-Based Design of Bridges

pdf PDF


Bridges belong to critical elements of transport infrastructure. Therefore, it is necessary in the highest extent to address all relevant risks (namely those that are related to ageing of fittings and components of technical facilities and with dynamic development of environment in time) in the preparation of the terms of references and in the design process. In order to design the bridges with these properties, it is not enough to respect only valid standards and norms and good practice, but they also need to be re-spected data on all possible risks and their combinations. For this it is necessary to use measures iden-tified in the risk management plan for design, which specifies local conditions and possibilities. This paper shows model of procedure which combines norms and risk analysis results.
