Integrated resilience assessment of bridges and transport networks exposed to hydraulic hazards

Project description

A system to increase bridge resilience to floods

Hydraulic actions are responsible for the damages of bridges, leading to significant economic and societal consequences. Network operators are ineffective in prioritising restoration and distributing resources to develop a reliable scheme for risk and resilience estimation due to the lack of fragility functions and recovery models. The EU-funded ReBounce project will develop an integrated scheme for the assessment of the risk and resilience of bridges exposed to hydraulic actions and the transport networks on which they are based. The project will provide realistic and adequate flood intensity measures for representative bridge structures, solid fragility models that will elaborate temporal variations of critical parameters and innovative multi-parameter restoration functions. The system will be tested on two different road networks in the EU, leading to recommendations for improving its resilience.
