Reliability of existing bridges from the viewpoint of new European standards
Original Language Title: Spoľahlivosť existujúcich mostov v kontexte nových európskych noriem
The new unified European standardisation implemented into the Slovak technical standardisation is only valid for the design of new building structures and bridges. It is still not prepared for application in the existing structures. The aim of the project is to create unified methodology of the existing bridge reliability verification and existing bridge complex evaluation based on the sophisticated methods of the engineering and mathematic theory of the reliability using the economic methods of verification of the expended financial costs efficiency. New methodology should be compatible with the unified European standardisation in the field of building structures and bridges and should respect the reliability level and structural lifetime of building structures defined by Eurocodes.
