Abstract

This paper demonstrates a structured method of ranking the performance risks of distressed reinforced concrete bridges. Fault tree analysis has been used to model the likelihood of occurrence of major distress mechanisms. This model can be used to identify the important risks for particular bridge components and their relative severity and to rank the performance trends of bridges.
