Abstract

This paper presents the relation between the cost of maintenance activities of a bridge and its reliability. Initially, based on fundamentals of reliability theory, a general methodology on bridge maintenance is introduced. Based on this maintenance strategy, the cost associated with different maintenance activities and its reliability increment is described. Having this kind of maintenance strategy is useful in bridge maintenance for a better understanding of the associated cost expenditures.
