Description

Over 40% of the nation’s bridges have been classified as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete, with the estimated cost of repairs running in the billions of dollars [1]. It would not be economically feasible to replace all of these structures. Therefore, quantitative assessment of bridge condition is needed to determine which structures need replacing and which are safe.
