Summary:
The automation of bridge strength evaluation by utilizing artificial intelligence tools is presented herein. The study involved the development of a microcomputer based expert system, REX (Rating EXpert). REX is an interactive menu-driven system combining the expert system shell EXSYS, the Grillage program 'BRIDGES', and various other pre- and post- processing devices. The system is capable of analyzing and assessing the load carrying capacity of solid and voided slab, and AASHTO girder and slab bridges.
