Abstract

In this paper, an approach for integrating bridge routine inspection information gathered by means of handwritten notes/sketches, photographs, and field measurements with a 3D bridge model is proposed for the integrated management of bridge inspection information and design/construction information. The 3D bridge model plays the central role of the information management during routine inspections in this approach. A prototype tool for assisting 3D bridge model based bridge routine inspection is developed. Industry Foundation Classes (IFCs) is the foundation of the data structure of the prototype tool. Finally, a case study of Kae-Peong Bridge, which is a one span prestressed concrete bridge in Korea, is conducted. The applicability and limitations of the proposed method are discussed.
