  42. 42. Bridge Management Systems Bridges cannot last forever. Whatever form of construction is used and whatever materials are adopted, sooner or later the effects of degradation begin to appear. The main factors influencing the nature and degree of degradation are: the structural framework; quality and type of materials; quality of construction; design and detailing; environment; scour; fire; fatigue; earthquakes; floods; weather and traffic loading. The six critical stages in the life of a bridge Bridge management system (BMS) is the tool to optimize the utilization of Bridge Structures under a Whole Life approach and shall be implemented from the conception to the construction of the structure
