    This bookcontains papers covering a wide range of studies on life-cycle performance analysis, design, maintenance, monitoring, management, and cost of civil infrastructure systems. Topics include reliability and optimization as design basis tools, monitoring systems, life-cycle cost analysis and management, bridge management systems, and quality control acceptance criteria. The book also discusses seismic reliability analysis of deteriorating structures, bridge inspection strategies, life-cycle cost analysis of structures on a network level, optimal risk-based design of infrastructures, updating bridge reliability using load monitoring data and statistics of extremes, rehabilitation of bridges, and lifetime analysis and structural repair of civil infrastructure systems.
