Paper Title:
System Fatigue Damage Reliability Assessment of Railway Riveted Bridges
  Abstract

According to the fatigue damage failure mechanism of riveted members, a riveted member probabilistic fatigue failure model (RMPFFM) was proposed, and a fracture finite element program is developed to calculate the geometry function of RMPFFM. Furthermore, a system fatigue damage reliability model of riveted bridges was proposed, and based on Monte-Carlo method, a large system fatigue damage reliability analysis program was developed to calculate the system fatigue failure probability. Then the system evaluation model was used to predicate the system fatigue damage reliability of Ganjiang Railway Bridge. According to assessment results, the probabilistic remaining fatigue life, safe inspection intervals and maintenance strategy are determined, which can control and avoid fatigue failure accident and reduce the contingent disaster in bridge service life.
