Life Cycle Cost Analysis and Design of Civil Infrastructure Systems

This product is not available in the selected currency.


This book comprises most of the papers presented at the First US/Japan Workshop on Life-Cycle Cost Analysis and Design of Civil Infrastructure Systems, held in Honolulu, Hawaii, August 7-8, 2000, and several invited contributions, mostly from Europe. The 18 papers cover a wide range of studies on life-cycle cost analysis, design, maintenance and management of civil infrastructure systems. Contributions are from a range of internationally recognized researchers and practicing structural engineers from the United States, Japan, and Europe. Topics include: conceptual design of structural systems; time-variant reliability of structures; structural health monitoring and symptom-based reliability; monitoring and testing for fatigue prediction; lifetime reliability profiles for fatigue and corrosion; maintenance planning for road pavements and structures; maintenance planning of reinforced concrete decks; bridge management systems; optimized and conventional bridges; optimal planning of maintenance and inspection; life-cycle cost assessment for bridge maintenance; specifications to aid life-cycle cost analyses; maintenance cost of deteriorating civil infrastructures; probabilistic models of cost for management of existing structures; and user cost and its applications to bridge management systems. This book will be invaluable to all concerned with life-cycle costing of civil infrastructure systems.
