Road networks and critical road structures such as bridges, culverts and flood ways have a vital role before, during and after extreme events to reduce the vulnerability of the community being served.
How does the performance of critical road structures such as bridges, culverts and floodways affect the community they serve; before, during and after the occurrence of a natural disaster?
It is important to assess the vulnerability of bridges in an extreme flood event as these critical infrastructures contribute to the resilience of the community during and in the recovery stage of the event.
The research is focused on the assessment of the vulnerability of a concrete u-slab bridge as a bridge type widely used in australia and simulation of the structure exposed to the different flood intensities and its consequent log impact.
Focus of this research is to assess the performance of existing composite steel girder bridges to most rational bushfire (bf) and hydrocarbon (hc) fire events.
There is a significant need to perform adequate assessment of the vulnerability of bridges and bridge networks prior to future flood events in Australia.
