Résumé du projet

"Degradation of bridge decks is a phenomenon that occurs over a considerable amount of time and the structural variations may be difficult to assess. Thanks to an algorithm based on the first-passage time theory, a new method is developed in order to quantify the damage. This process can be extended to numerous other phenomena such as sea level changes. The goal of this PhD thesis is to offer a new monitoring tool that can detect early-degradation stages."
