Abstract: There are numerous factors involved in the interrelationship between damage states, redundancy, system strength and structural performance. This volume examines some of these factors and provides an overlook of the state of the art. Topics covered are damage accumulation models for structural materials, damage corrosion models for steel girder bridges, impact of different damage states on the redundancy and overall system strength for both brittle and ductile behavior, evaluation of structural damage and redundancy for nondeterministic systems, common events that could cause failure of redundant structures, and calibration of earthquake damage probability matrices.

Subject Headings: Damage (structural) | Damage (material) | Steel structures | Structural strength | Structural systems | Structural models | Material properties
