By Institution of Civil Engineers, Highways Agency, International Association for Bridge Maintenance, Parag C. Das, Dan M. Frangopol

The establishment of Civil Engineers has organised a chain of meetings to have fun, first and foremost of the hot Millennium, the large achievements made within the box of bridge engineering in recent times.

This quantity of papers from the second one of those meetings, held in Hong Kong, encompasses the cutting-edge in bridge layout, development, upkeep and safeguard overview. It contains papers on significant bridge schemes, either accomplished and below development, and on cutting edge ways utilized in numerous elements of the area.

The type of construction should consider whether details are present that might provide easy access for deleterious materials into the duct. ) deck slab detailing at anchorages duct linings deck waterproofing drainage systems. All of these details will affect the protection given to the tendons. Other factors that will affect the durability of the structure, include the use of sea-dredged aggregates or admixtures containing chlorides, location of the structure, design and traffic loading. The location of the structure is a major factor.

Introduction Long life fatigue behaviour is of great importance in predicting the remaining life of existing bridges as well as in designing new bridges, because the service life of highway and railway bridges is usually expected to be so longer than 100 years. The author previously investigated the long life fatigue behaviour of transverse stiffener joint and web penetration joint in steel railway bridges [1],[2] and of transverse stiffener joints in steel highway bridges [3] under variable amplitude loading.
