Evaluation of Bayesion updated partial factors for material properties in existing concrete structures

Robby Caspeele UGent and Luc Taerwe UGent (2012) IALCCE 2012 : proceedings of the third international symposium on life-cycle civil engineering. p.797-804
abstract
A rather simple and straightforward, but objective and coherent partial factor method for existing concrete structures was developed. The proposed framework is compatible with the current Eurocodes for the design of new structures, but additionally enables to incorporate alternative values for the target reliability level, alternative values for the remaining working life and also updated information based on e.g. on-site inspection data and data from testing, as these all considerably influence the partial factors in the structural reliability assessment of existing structures. First, the developed Bayesian updated simplified Level II approach which was used for the derivation of so-called adjustment coefficients for partial factors will be explained in this contribution. Further, the proposed Bayesian adjustment coefficients for the material properties in existing concrete structures are quantitatively evaluated using FORM analyses.
