    • Application of system-based correction factors in condition rating of steel-composite bridges 

      Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Anitori, Giorgio; Ghosn, Michel (CRC Press Taylor, 2016)
      Conference report

      Traditional condition rating procedures concentrate on member condition and give no consider-ation to system behavior. In this paper a methodology is proposed to modify the correction factor applied dur-ing the assignment ...
    • Condition rating of concrete bridges based on structural robustness 

      Anitori, Giorgio; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (CRC Press, 2014)

    • Live load model for refined analysis of short and medium-span bridge systems 

      Anitori, Giorgio; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (CRC Press Taylor, 2016)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The accuracy of bridge system safety evaluations and reliability assessments obtained through refined structural analysis procedures depends on the proper modeling of traffic load effects. In fact, traffic load intensities ...
    • Methodology for development of live load models for refined analysis of short and medium-span highway bridges 

      Anitori, Giorgio; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (2018)
      Article
      Open Access
      The accuracy of bridge system safety evaluations and reliability assessments obtained through refined structural and finite element analyses depends not only on the accuracy of the structural model itself but also on the ...
    • Redundancy of bridge systems under lateral loads 

      Anitori, Giorgio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-10-22)
      Minor thesis
      Open Access
      The design of bridges has been traditionally done on a member by member basis and little consideration is provided to the remaining capacity after the failure of one structural element. As a consequence of several tragic ...
    • Reliability and redundancy of bridge systems under lateral loads 

      Anitori, Giorgio; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2011)
      Conference lecture
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A methodology is proposed to analyze the structural redundancy of bridge systems under lateral loads. The paper compares the results obtained from a probabilistic approach to those of a simplified deterministic analysis. ...
    • Risk-based highway bridge inspection intervals 

      Anitori, Giorgio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-04-23)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Infrastructure maintenance programs establish schedules for routine inspections of highway bridges with little consideration of their current conditions. The time interval between two inspections is traditionally set based ...
    • WIM-based live-load model for advanced analysis of simply supported short- and medium-span highway bridges 

      Anitori, Giorgio; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (2017-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      The accuracy of bridge system safety evaluations and reliability assessments obtained through refined structural analysis procedures depends on the proper modeling of traffic load effects. While the live-load models specified ...
