Bridge Maintenance, Safety, Management, Life-Cycle Sustainability and Innovations contains lectures and papers presented at the Tenth International Conference on Bridge Maintenance, Safety and Management (IABMAS 2020), held in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, April 11-15, 2021. This volume consists of a book of extended abstracts and a USB card containing the full papers of 571 contributions presented at IABMAS 2020, including the T.Y. Lin Lecture, 9 Keynote Lectures, and 561 technical papers from 40 countries.

The contributions presented at IABMAS 2020 deal with the state of the art as well as emerging concepts and innovative applications related to the main aspects of maintenance, safety, management, life-cycle sustainability and technological innovations of bridges. Major topics include: advanced bridge design, construction and maintenance approaches, safety, reliability and risk evaluation, life-cycle management, life-cycle sustainability, standardization, analytical models, bridge management systems, service life prediction, maintenance and management strategies, structural health monitoring, non-destructive testing and field testing, safety, resilience, robustness and redundancy, durability enhancement, repair and rehabilitation, fatigue and corrosion, extreme loads, and application of information and computer technology and artificial intelligence for bridges, among others.

This volume provides both an up-to-date overview of the field of bridge engineering and significant contributions to the process of making more rational decisions on maintenance, safety, management, life-cycle sustainability and technological innovations of bridges for the purpose of enhancing the welfare of society. The Editors hope that these Proceedings will serve as a valuable reference to all concerned with bridge structure and infrastructure systems, including engineers, researchers, academics and students from all areas of bridge engineering.


Dr. Hiroshi Yokota is a Professor at Division of Engineering and Policy for Sustainable Environment, Faculty of Engineering, Hokkaido University. He obtained his Doctor of Engineering degree from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1993. Before he joined Hokkaido University, he worked for Ministry of Transport and Port and Airport Research Institute, Japan for 29 years. His research interests include life cycle management of infrastructure and sustainability design of concrete structures. As parts of the life cycle management, performance evaluation, deterioration prediction, effectiveness of repair are main considerations for research. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers and over 200 papers at international conferences and symposia. He is currently President of Asian Concrete Federation, Executive Council Member of JCI, and Convener of ISO/TC71/WG1 (Life cycle management of concrete structures).

Dr. Dan Frangopol is the inaugural holder of the Fazlur R. Khan Endowed Chair of Structural Engineering and Architecture at Lehigh University. Before joining Lehigh University in 2006, he was Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he is now Professor Emeritus. He is recognized as a leader in the field of life-cycle engineering of civil and marine structures. Dr. Frangopol is the Founding President of the International Association for Bridge Maintenance and Safety (IABMAS) and International Association for Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE). He has authored/co-authored 3 books, 64 book chapters, and over 420 articles in archival journals including 11 prize winning papers. He is the Founding Editor of Structure and Infrastructure Engineering and of the Book Series Structures and Infrastructures. Dr. Frangopol is the recipient of several medals, awards, and prizes, from ASCE, IABSE, IASSAR, SAE and other professional organizations, such as the Newmark, Freudenthal, Housner, Lin, Khan and Croes Medals, the Ang, Howard, and Moisseiff Awards, the Munro, Noble, Reese and Wellington Prizes, and the Lifetime Achievement Award in Education (OPAL), to name a few. Dr. Frangopol delivered many plenary lectures at international conferences and several named lectures including the T.Y. Lin, F.R. Khan, K.C. Kavanagh, Warren, and the Wenyuan Lectures. He has served as a consultant or advisor to numerous companies. He holds 4 honorary doctorates and 14 honorary professorships from major universities. He is a member of the US National Academy of Construction, a Foreign Member of the Academy of Europe (London), a Foreign Associate of the Engineering Academy of Japan, a Foreign Member of the Royal Academy of Belgium, an Honorary Member of the Romanian Academy, an Honorary Member of the Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences, and a Distinguished Member of ASCE.
