AbstractBoth owners and users of bridges expect them to have a service life of 50 to 100 years, with only routine maintenance. But demands on most of our bridges have been increasing annually because of growing traffic volumes, higher loads, and harsher environments. These conditions, coupled with the inadequate funding allocated for maintenance, have led to the accelerated aging and extensive deterioration of these critical structures.
