Abstract

This paper studies the combined effect of corrosion and fatigue on the growth of cracks that arise from natural corrosion in steel bridges. It is shown that if these two effects need to be simultaneously analysed. If not then the resulting life is not conservative. Consequently, to enable a better understanding of the remaining life of steel bridges this paper presents a simple methodology for performing this coupled analysis.
