Journal Article
Tomor, A. K., Melbourne, C., Wang, J., & Tomor, A. (2007). A new masonry arch bridge assessment strategy (SMART). Proceedings of the ICE - Bridge Engineering, 160(2), 81-87. https://doi.org/10.1680/bren.2007.160.2.81

About 40% of the European railway bridge stock comprises masonry arch bridges and over 60% of these are over 100 years old. All are ageing and most are carrying loads well in excess of those envisaged by their builders. The maintenance and assessment... Read More about A new masonry arch bridge assessment strategy (SMART).
