Maslenica bridge as a case study for revealing and weighting key performance indicators of arch bridges within the COST Action TU 1406


Conference segment provides a forum for discussion on problems related to structural performance for the whole life cycle of the civil engineering structures. It covers advances in design of new and assessment of existing structures based on lessons learned from practice, from collapses, from successes, aiming optimization of structural life cycle management decisions.

Rating and weighting of performance indicators from component, through system, up to network level is a crucial for optimal management of structures aiming their safety, durability and reliability, security and serviceability, availability and maintainability.

Application of scientific achievements in linear and nonlinear analysis methods, numerical modelling and simulation, data updating and processing, semi and full probabilistic based methods with adequate treatment of uncertainties is envisaged to improve design of new and assessment and maintenance of existing infrastructures.

Contributions to the conference segment may be within – but are not limited to – the following topics:

  • Application of monitoring data in structural modelling
  • Performance indicators through component, system and network levels
  • Advanced linear and nonlinear analysis, probabilistic based methods
  • Numerical modelling and simulation of environmental and accidental actions
  • Treatment of uncertainties in resistance and load modelling
  • Optimization of life cycle management decisions
  • Forensic structural engineering
  • Service life modelling
  • Structural design adaptation to climate change
