Evaluation of distress mechanisms in bridges exposed to aggressive environments.

Venkatesan, S, Setunge, S, Molyneaux , T, & Fenwick, J (2006) Evaluation of distress mechanisms in bridges exposed to aggressive environments. In CRC for Construction Innovation Second International Conference Clients Driving Innovation, 14 March 2006., Gold Coast, Qld.


There are about 2500 bridges in Queensland, Australia. Majority of these structures require significant repairs around the halfway mark of their design life with probably 1% or less reaching a 100 year design life. (Carse, 2005). This is due to the fact that bridges constructed in aggressive environments such as the coastal regions experience accelerated deterioration. As a result, maintaining the service delivery of these assets has become one of the important issues for the Queensland Department of Main Roads (QDMR).

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
