Vransko bridge (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
The assessment is performed in three steps incorporating different information gained by B-WIM measurements. An initial reference point was determined based on design codes for new structures. In step one, measured influence lines were incorporated and in step two, the model was calibrated to measured load distribution over the girders. The third step was to define and use a site specific load model. The reliability index increased significantly during the step-by-step assessment.
