Integrated Framework Using Monitoring And Reliability For Improved Bridge Management Under Uncertainty: Phase 3 - Performance Prediction And Optimum Monitoring Planning

Principal Investigators: Dan M. Frangopol

The objective of this research is to develop a novel integrated framework using structural health monitoring and reliability for improved bridge management under uncertainty. Through the use of new technologies employed for structural health monitroing and reliability approaches, the project is expected to have significant impact on bridge lifetime management practices. The third phase of this project will deal with bridge performance prediction and optimum monitoring planning.
