This chapter is aimed at presenting a review of the main principles, concepts, methods, and strategies for life-cycle design and assessment of deteriorating structural systems under uncertainty. General criteria for deterioration modeling are first presented, with emphasis on the effects of corrosion and fatigue in steel structures and chloride-induced corrosion in concrete structures. The timevariant structural performance is then investigated with reference to a set of probabilistic performance indicators, and the structural lifetime assessment and design criteria associated with a reliability target are finally formulated.

Abstract

This chapter is aimed at presenting a review of the main principles, concepts, methods, and strategies for life-cycle design and assessment of deteriorating structural systems under uncertainty. General criteria for deterioration modeling are first presented, with emphasis on the effects of corrosion and fatigue in steel structures and chloride-induced corrosion in concrete structures. The timevariant structural performance is then investigated with reference to a set of probabilistic performance indicators, and the structural lifetime assessment and design criteria associated with a reliability target are finally formulated.
