Asset management, bridge scour, climate change impacts, risk and reliability
The University of Surrey Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) has participated in a number of European projects related to the current application:
- FP7 project MAINLINE looking at long term deterioration/corrosion models for railway bridges.
- COST Action TU0601 leading the categorization of the failure consequences for bridge structures.
Role in the project
- Participate in WP4 and will provide technical contribution towards the assessment of climate change impacts on long-term degradation processes and extreme events in the form of bridge scour.
- Lead the development of the framework for consequence analysis of transportation networks.
Activities to implement in the project
University of Surrey will implement a consequence analysis framework that will be integrated within the risk-based decision-making framework. The research team will also utilise deterioration models for metallic bridges and implement scour risk models that will be analysed under changing environmental conditions within a stochastic methodology.
