Abstract: In the frame of the research work APVT-20-012204, three reinforced concrete girder bridges were diagnosed. The results of the diagnostic will be used for modelling and investigation of the real traffic load effects. The modified reliability levels for the evaluation of existing bridges were used for their evaluation [1,2]. Here, the paper is focused on just one bridge, which is the most corrupted. This bridge was numerically modelled using software ATENA. The material characteristics needed for modelling were obtained by diagnostic.
The paper is concerned with detection and simulation of corrosion of steel reinforcement in the reinforced concrete [3]. The cracking response of the reinforced concrete beams due to the corrosion effect of the steel reinforcement was analyzed. The effect of corrosion was simulated by the nonlinear numerical analysis with the program ATENA [4,5].
