Gimsøystraumen bridge (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
A probabilistic assessment of the chloride concentration at the reinforcement was performed using enhanced Monte Carlo simulation. The basic random variables estimated from test data were chloride concentration at the surface, diffusion coefficient and concrete cover. Supplementary basic random variables were initial concentration, critical chloride concentration and model uncertainty. Component and system reliability was considered and reliability updating was demonstrated. The analysis makes use of the existing measured data, i.e. the measurements are not initiated in this investigation.
