Abstract: Corrosion monitoring of steel bridge cables is treated below. Simulation model adopting the Washizu’s variational principle and backpropagation neural network approach is used for numerical analysis of the problem. The numerical treatment of nonlinear problems appearing is made using the updated Lagrangian formulation of motion. The feasibility of parallel processing combined with backpropagation neural network is established. Adoption of EM-sensors for experimental testing in situ. Numerical and experimental verifications are submitted.


Key words: corrosion monitoring, EM-sensors, neural network, parallel processing, steel ropes, ultimate behavior
