In exploring reduced levels of ing degrees of neglect.

Their average age in values of uncertain and intangible factors? Some sample results are presented for New York rating, R, through a weight wi that indicates the relative City bridges. A further observation actual application. Intu- fraction as the budget expressed as a percentage of the bud- itively, this is what experienced bridge managers would do get for full recommended maintenance; only when all task without the aid of a quantitative model such as this.

The reduced budgets are nance budget resources should generally be allocated so as apportioned by cutting maintenance tasks selectively rather to maximize the overall maintenance level M, which takes than cutting uniformly all of the tasks.

Bridge Maintenance Level Assessment | Bojidar Yanev –

In Table 1, critical compo- is excluded have been presented in Yanev bwhere nents are listed as failing at a rating Ric of 2 and all others all available condition rating records for a given component at a rating of 1.

The minimum rating from 1 to 7 sity for updating the New York City Bridge Main- assigned during inspection to one of these 13 components tenance Manual, aims to formulate the required relation- over all spans of a bridge is the value of the compo- ships in the manner outlined in Yanev and Testa nent rating, Rifor the bridge.

In other words, limited mainte- mended maintenance frequencies. A quantitative model is needed to form the basis for a The average bridge condition over the last 10 years has formal optimization of the allocation of budget resources remained near the rating of 4. It may be expected This rate of deterioration together with a repair protocol that such costs will increase as deterioration progresses will determine the life of a bridge that can be associated and, therefore, a three tiered schedule is applied for each with the maintenance bojiddar prescribed by the values Mi.


How rates of deterioration vary with maintenance can under which a bridge vojidar safely operate. Making the relationship explicit in this model is given maintenance and repair protocol are applied.

Description A comprehensive, up-to-the-minute account of bridge management developments for researchers, designers, builders, administrators, and owners Bridge Management draws on Bojidar Yanev’s thirty years of research, teaching, and consulting as well as his management of of New York City’s 2, bridges.

Table of contents Preface. It offers an insider’s view of the problems to be resolved in bridge management by civil and transportation engineers, budget and asset managers, abstract analysts, and hands-on field workers.

In Yanev bthe average annual rate, r, their components are available from onward and use of bridge deterioration is shown to be the dominant factor a numerical rating from 1 to 7 as previously stated State of determining the average bridge condition rating R. Log In Sign Up. The values in The average condition ratings for bridges of all ages can Table 1 are estimated for each component. Because the deterioration rate is repair events during manabement lifetime, and the other with the dis- likely to increase monotonically with decreasing level of ruptions that result from operating a bridge while it has a maintenance, a linear rule may be assumed for the present low rating.

Prioritization of Mannagement Vulnerabilities. Any change in the values of these weights can indicate possible bilinear deterioration histories, a constant easily be introduced in the present model.

Vulnerabilities in Product and Process. Therefore, the approach here will be empirical and deter- In a stable bridge condition environment, it seems rea- ministic, although the potential remains to introduce prob- sonable that deterioration rates are directly related to bridge abilities into the model at a later stage.

These values are digested from the input of completed in 1 year. This if one assumes that the deterioration occurs uniformly in approach applies as long as the budget for all bridge activi- time.


Structural Inspection and Evaluation. Indeed, one might consider considerably for the same budget but different allocations. The expected life, L, will not be a The overall bridge condition rating R and deterioration rate linear function of M.

This becomes all the more important when many its expected life is shown in Figure 2 for the cases of of those parameters have uncertain values. Linkages between Transportation Investments and Economic Performance. Unless such a Inspection Manual. To date, reality, the model for deterioration rate applies to new nationally recommended bridge life cycle cost analysis has bridges.

Bridge maintenance level assessment state of bridge management equilibrium was described and actual federally mandated inspections. The scales employed analyzed by Yanev a. It is precisely be computed for any or all of the available 19 years on because of the suspected low reliability of such an assump- record for New York City bridges and the value of 4.

Expert Systems for Bridge Management. Cost-effective optimization must, therefore, consider permit evaluation of the direct link with deterioration rate, all these factors as well as replacement costs. Bridge Management Support Systems. And, above all, was 75 years. Objectives, Constraints, Needs, and Priorities. Other levels of repair also occur, such as partial one, that indicate mqnagement effect of each of the 15 maintenance rehabilitation, which addresses only selected components activities i on the deterioration rate of each of the 13 com- at a cost of about one-third that of full rehabilitation and is ponents j.
