Abstract

This paper concerns reliability centred management of river control structures. Reliability
concepts are reviewed, and presented in a straightforward single parameter format appropriate for use
in this context. A case study is presented that illustrates the described approach, and investigates the
connection between reliability and maintenance expenditure. Correlation was found between lower
reliability and both total and preventative maintenance expenditure, but little correlation with the
amount of reactive maintenance expenditure.
