Bridge collapse frequencies versus failure probabilities

Author: Dirk Proske
Publisher: Cham, Switzerland : Springer, [2018] ©2018
Series: Risk engineering (Springer (Firm))
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This monograph provides a comparative study between failure probabilities and collapse frequencies in structural bridge engineering. The author presents techniques to resolve and extend the limitations of both parameters, taking also into account the time dependency of both parameters. The book includes available data and case studies and thus presents patterns to identify potential weaknesses and challenges in  Read more...
