This project aims to develop integrated maintenance-monitoring-management systems for highway bridge infrastructure at both project-level and network-level, based on simulated and monitored time-dependent bridge health as well as reliability and life-cycle cost analyses.
This project is investigating a family of innovative self-centering (SC) steel frame systems with the potential to withstand the currently accepted design basis earthquake (DBE) for buildings without damage.
