Weikendorf bridge (analysis)

A detailed assessment of the condition of an object.


Element type
The initiation of the assessment was research interest. The purpose was to develop a probabilistic framework for predicting deterioration in the format of a semi-Markov process, based on inspection data from visual inspections and analytical models of the deterioration process. Inspection records in the form of condition rating was available and the additional data collected before repairing the bridge was used for developing the model. How the decision on repairing the bridge was taken is not covered in the present paper.
