Recent natural disasters that seriously affected critical infrastructure (CI) with significant socio-economic losses and impact revealed the need for the development of reliable methodologies for vulnerability and risk assessment. In this paper, a risk-based multi-level stress test method that has been recently proposed, aimed at enhancing...

Over the past century, European countries have developed mature and extensive transportation infrastructure networks, in which bridges play a vital role. Their design is increasingly influenced by life-cycle multi-objective performance criteria, which comprise economic, environmental and social factors. Hence, the emphasis has shifted from new...

In the context of the STREST project (http://www.strest-eu.org/), an engineering multi-level risk-based methodology to stress test critical non-nuclear infrastructures has been developed. This paper summarizes the STREST framework and its exploratory application to six key representative Critical infrastructures in Europe, exposed to variant...

The accuracy of predictions of structural behavior by finite element analysis strongly depends on the formulation of the numerical model. Depending on the problem at hand, the analyst has to make a number of choices, which influence the numerical results to a greater or lesser extent. For complex cases, e.g. existing reinforced concrete...

Modeling the stochastic evolution of a large-scale fleet or network generally proves to be challenging. This difficulty may be compounded through complex relationships between various assets in the network. Although a great number of probabilistic graph-based models (e.g., Bayesian networks) have been developed recently to describe the behavior...

Pipeline networks for gas and water are the lifelines of our society. Their presence and correct functioning translates in benefits and any disruption, malfunctioning or ruptures represent hazards for the community. Most pipelines are buried, which impedes direct monitoring of the structural reliability of the networks. The behavior of the soil...

Pipeline networks for gas and water are the lifelines of our society. Most pipelines are buried, which impedes direct monitoring of the structural reliability of the networks. The behavior of the soil surrounding the pipes may impose hazardous loads or deformations threatening the integrity of the network or even cause failure of pipes. This is...

Markov-based models for predicting deterioration for civil infrastructures are widely recognized as suitable tools addressing this mechanism. The objective of this paper is to provide insights regarding a network of orthotropic steel bridges in terms of degradation. Consequently, a model combining a dynamic Bayesian network and a Markov chain is...

This paper presents a monitoring and modelling methodology to assess the current and future conditions of steel bridges subjected to fatigue cracking. Steel bridges are subjected to fatigue cracking as a result of fluctuating stresses caused by the crossing of heavy vehicles. Specifically for orthotropic steel bridge decks, fatigue cracking is...
