Life cycle management
Life cycle assessment and structural monitoring
In life cycle assessment the reliability of a structure is calculated over the intended service life of the structure considering the actual environmental exposure factors and the individual structural characteristics. This method can be applied to assess the durability of new and existing structures as well as specify necessary measures for improving durability.
The effectiveness of the chosen measures can be monitored with a structure monitoring system during the service life of the structure and the prediction of durability appropriately updated.
