Evaluation of distress mechanisms in bridges exposed to aggressive environments.

Venkatesan, S and Setunge, Sujeeva and Molyneaux, Tom C. K. and Fenwick, J (2006) Evaluation of distress mechanisms in bridges exposed to aggressive environments. [Conference Paper]

Abstract

There are about 2500 bridges in Queensland, Australia. Majority of these structures require significant repairs around the halfway mark of their design life with probably 1% or less reaching a 100 year design life. (Carse, 2005). This is due to the fact that bridges constructed in aggressive environments such as the coastal regions experience accelerated deterioration. As a result, maintaining the service delivery of these assets has become one of the important issues for the Queensland Department of Main Roads (QDMR).
