A Study on the Priority Ranking Algorithm for Bridge Management at Network Level

Network Level을 고려한 교량의 우선순위 산정 알고리즘에 관한 연구

  • Published : 2005.06.01


Bridge structures are properly designed in accordance with the design specifications with required safety margin. However, due to the heavy vehicle traffic and environmental attacks, bridge often requires repairs and the deteriorated one should be replaced or rehabilitated. In this paper, a prior ranking algorithm is proposed to assist a decision making process in bridge management at network level. Based on the literature survey for the existing studuies, two important factors which affect the decision making procedure for bridge management at network level are identified. These factors are implemented into the algorithm as a load carrying capacity function and traffic function, respectively.
