The overall motivation of Task Group 2.8 (TG2.8) is based on the fact that structural systems are typically designed to stay in service for at least several decades. This implies that proper attention must be given to structural performance under various actions, both man-made and environmental, to the methodology of structural analysis and assessment, to material properties, to the inverse identification and monitoring of structural resistance among others. The main focus is the development of a holistic performance based design approach for new and existing structures and infrastructures.
The objective of TG2.8 is to promote and to provide on the basis of the guide to good practice “safety and performance concepts – reliability assessment of concrete structures” the theoretical and practical developments for the performance based design. This includes structural safety, serviceability and reliability, advanced methodology including probabilistic methods, inverse analyses techniques, monitoring methods, and performance and optimised life-cycle cost based design concepts.
