Topics of Interest

All major aspects of bridge maintenance, safety, and management will be addressed at IABMAS 2022. The state of the art as well as emerging concepts and innovative applications will be considered. Papers on theories, methods, algorithms, and applications are all welcome. The Conference will focus on the following topics in general but not limited. Mini symposia or special sessions are organized for covering some specific topics; please check at “Program-Mini symposia” and “Program-Special sessions.”

    • Maintenance strategies
    • Inspection and diagnostic
