A Review of Genetic Algorithms Applied to Optimizing Maintenance Strategy of Bridges
Abstract:Along with the fast increasing of maintenance demand, the problems associated with maintenance and reinforcement decision-making for deteriorating bridges such as maintenance strategy optimization have been present research focus. The solutions to these problems have inspired a considerable amount of research, one particular area being the application of evolutionary search algorithms such as the genetic algorithm (GA). This paper begins with a brief overview of bridge maintenance strategy optimization followed by a review of the current state of research in applying evolutionary techniques to solving this problem.
