Abstract
Bridge Management Systems (BMSs) provide an efficient means of manipulating information about a bridge in order that its long-term health is assured and maintenance programmes can be formulated in line with budgetary constraints and funding limitations. However, some weak points remain unsolved and thus limit the possibilities of BMSs. Since accurate material deterioration and damage evolution models are not yet fully developed, one of the weaknesses of a BMS is how to decide when to act and whi...
