Colle Isarco bridge (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
The analysis is a robustness-based performance assessment of a bridge with ongoing deterioration. A probabilistic non-linear FE analysis was carried out, including the effects of corrosion of the tendons. Possible damage scenarios were modelled in 4 discrete stages ranging from 0% tendon failure to 45% tendon failure. Robustness-based performance is a system parameter considering dependance and redistribution among components.
