Cross-Frame and Diaphragm Behavior in Skewed Bridges
The author examines the existing specifications and guidance for bracing provisions by AASHTO, AISC, and TxDot, and the need for developing bracing requirements....

A New Skew
Most bridges that cross roadways or other elements at a skewed angle are designed based on right-angle crossings with inefficient modifications. A new concept for skewed crossings is a...

Evaluation of Sampling Properties of General Extreme Value (GEV) Distribution-L-Moments Vs Conventional Moments
The sample estimates of conventional moments are shown to be biased and this bias increases for small samples, and especially so when the skewness is high (Wallis et al., 1974). The recently...

Scour around Exposed Pile Foundations
Laboratory experiments were conducted to measure local scour around exposed pile groups for a variety of conditions including different spacings, different skew angles, different patterns...

The Effect of Approaching Flow Angles on the Local Scour at Semi-Circular Piers

Linear and Nonlinear Finite Element Analyses of RC Skewed Slab Bridges with Integral Wall Abutments
The design of rigid-frame skewed slab bridges is complicated by higher shears and moments near the obtuse corner (see Fig.1). While the finite element method can be used to compute these...

Vibration and Impact in Skewed Steel Bridges
The vibration and impact of skewed multigirder bridges due to vehicles moving across rough bridge deck are studied. The bridges are modeled as grillage beam systems. The vehicle is simulated...

Physical Testing of Two R/C Skewed Slab Bridges with Integral Wall Abutments
Two one-third scale models of an existing reinforced concrete skewed slab bridge with integral wall abutments were tested statically to failure. Typically, these bridges are designed using...

Response of Concrete Filled Grid Decks Under Static Loads
This paper briefly discusses the bending strength and stiffness of concrete filled grid decks that are subjected to static loads. The influence of design parameters (traffic flow direction,...
