It combines the different models of load and resistance involving both deterministic and stochastic variables. The actual safety, i.e. the probability of failure, is calculated using Monte Carlo simulation and accounting for localized damage of the bridge. A possible damage indicator is also presented in the paper and the usefulness of updating the developed bridge safety model, with regards to the damage indicator, is examined.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2016 the Authors||Keywords:||Reliability;Safety;Probabilistic;Bridges;Bayesian updating;Damage indicator||DOI:||10.1016/j.proeng.2016.08.279||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||The 9th International Conference on Bridges in Danube Basin: New Trenda in Bridge Engineering and Efficient Solution for Large and Medium Bridges 2016, Žilina, Slovakia, 30 September - 1 October 2016|
