No or few non-significant cases of damage Damage may develop in the future or is in its initial step. Damage is already developing. Repair is needed in short/middle-term.
Severe damage which could affect the structural behaviour. Short-term repair is needed.
Quite severe damage. The bridge, or part of it, is close to its structural limit. Use restrictions and urgent repair is needed.
Table 14. Rating of the structures and structural components damage degree. Condition rating is the combination of 4 indexes: damage extension (1-4), gravity (0-2), predictable evolution (0-2), and influ- ence on other elements (0-2).
State General Interest Road Network
The practice in the State General Interest Road Network includes the types of in- spections listed in Table 15 and the condition ratings described in Table 16.
The BMS used by this administration is SGP 2000. Data stored in the system includes:
Visual Inspection. Instructed Technical staff required. Data collection of all detected damages leading to condition rating. No special means of access used. Higher level inspection should be performed if unusual damages are detected.
Extensive visual Inspection. NDT, sampling, numerical analysis, performed as required…
Experienced Technical staff required. Detailed assessment of the bridge performed.
