Probability-Based Stability Design in Cantilever Bridge Construction
Abstract:The paper proposes a direct application of reliability-based methods for the solution of a specific structural engineering problem: the loss of stability by overturning during construction of bridges built up by the balanced cantilever method. A sensitivity analysis is performed to show the importance of different random variables in the design upon the safety index during construction. The main assumptions and methodology applicable to other design situations are presented. The results are compared with those derived from a deterministic approach.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
