Abstract

Bridge scour is a long-term process that occurs underwater and cannot be observed directly. Thus, bridge failure due to scour tends to occur suddenly and cause disasters. To prevent bridge scour failure and disasters, an evaluation model to plan maintenance against bridge scour is necessary. This paper proposes a model that integrates a genetic algorithm, artificial neural networks, and Monte Carlo simulation to predict the bridge scour status as a reference for maintenance plans. To handle the relative lack of data with regard to long-term records, rainfall events are introduced for modeling, and extreme climate scenarios are considered. As a case study, a real bridge was evaluated, and the results were used as a reference for a maintenance plan.
