Risk Consequence Assessment of Existing Bridges Using Fuzzy Based Analytic Hierarchy Process
The assessment of the risk probability and risk consequence of existing long-span bridges has become a focus in both research and engineering applications. In this paper, a process to assess the risk consequence of existing long-span bridges is developed. The analytic hierarchy process was combined with the fuzzy synthesis. In accordance with the features of existing long-span bridges, risk consequences are classified and the model of the risk consequence is simulated. A bridge as the example is evaluated by this process and the results show that the risk consequence of the bridge is negligible. Combining the risk probability and risk consequence gives the comprehensive risk of this bridge is negligible.
