Bridges rarely just break down. It is the different structural members of the bridge that slowly degrade the whole structure. One of the most damaged structural members of a bridge is the edge beam. This paper is based on a survey of 260 repaired or replaced edge beams located in a region in Sweden during a 15-year period, 1990-2005. It describes the real life span for edge beams and associated costs to repair them. Survival analysis of replaced edge beams is presented.
