COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF SOME BRIDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Abstract: 

Safety and functionality of concrete road bridges are of a special importance for the traffic flow continuity ­in different circumstances including after earthquakes, floods, as well as after vessel or vehicle impact on piers. This is why almost all countries use Bridge Management Systems (BMS). They include the bridge inspection manuals, guidelines, report writing, bridge condition evaluation and determination of priorities (rating) for maintenance work or rehabilitation to achieve the design service life of bridges. This paper presents a comparative analysis of some documents of certain countries and associations, related to BMSs and their main components.
