About the research

Abstract: The objectives of the work are to develop and illustrate, through application to several different timber bridge fleets (i.e., each fleet represents bridges with similar geometrical, material and behavioral characteristics), the concepts of and information needed to adopt and implement fleet management strategies; to develop an implementation plan for fleet management strategies; and to illustrate the viability of fleet management strategies.
