AbstractA considerable percentage of highway bridges in North America is in a structurally/functionally deficient state due to aging, aggressive environment and increased traffic load and volume. The consequences of this deficiency are numerous, including reduced safety, serviceability and service life, which lead to increased risk of injuries and fatalities; and increased maintenance costs and user costs. Reliable predictions of life cycle performance are critical to the optimization of their design and maintenance that will lead to reduced risks of failure and life cycle costs.
