Reduction of the Seismic Risk of a Highway Network

Seismic Analysis of Bridges: Simplified or Refined Approach
This paper discusses the differences of seismic responses of bridges among various analysis methods and approaches....

Dynamic Loading of a Rigid Frame Bridge
The objective of this paper is to investigate the dynamic response of a rigid frame bridge to two trucks (side by side) passing over the rough bridge deck. The rigid frame bridge is designed...

Continuity in Precast Prestressed Concrete Girder Bridges
An experimental study conducted to evaluate the behavior of pretensioned bridge members made continuous with a cast-in-place concrete slab and diaphragm is summarized. In this study, the...

Design of Box Girder Bridges by Nonlinear Theory
A modified design procedure applicable to a large number of conventional box girder bridges with longitudinally-stiffened flanges has been presented in this paper. It determines the ultimate...

Simple Live Load Distribution Factors for Girder Bridges

Design Guidelines for the Use of Debonded Strands
In this paper, presented are the flexural tests performed on beams containing debonded strands. Results show that debonded strands can be used reliably and safely, stipulating that the...

Construction of the Baytown Bridge, Houston
Connecting Baytown and LaPorte, the Baytown Bridge is a twin structure with four traffic lanes each. Its structure is designed as a cable-stayed bridge with concrete towers and composite...

The Tatara Bridge - World's Longest Cable-Stayed Span
The Tatara Bridge now under construction has the main span length of 890m which will be the world's longest in cable-stayed bridges when completed. Except for certain lengths of prestressed...

Response of Stressed Timber T - and Box-Beam Bridges
The objective of this study is to establish the strength, stiffness, and transverse load distribution factors of stressed timber T-, Bulk T-, and Box-beam bridge systems. To achieve the...

AISI-FHWA Model Bridge Test
The Model Bridge Study involved a large experimental test program to evaluate the behavior of a 0.4-scale model of a two-span continuous plate-girder bridge with modular precast prestressed...

Bridge Evaluation Using a Hybrid Information System
The objective of this paper is to discuss the developments and implementation of a hybrid system consisting of a rule-based information system and hypermedia technology for use by inspectors...

Design and Field Performance of a Metal-Plate-Connected Wood Truss Bridge
This paper describes an on-going study on the design and performance attributes of an experimental wood-truss bridge. This is believed to be the first roadway bridge application of metal-plate-connected...

Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Steel Bridges
Global nondestructive monitoring techniques are of great significance for rapid monitoring of bridges. One promising technique involves monitoring the microseismic events (Acoustic Emissions,...

Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Fatigue Crack Growth in HSLA-80 Steel Box Beams
An acoustic emission is a transient elastic wave generated by the rapid release of energy from a localized source within a material. There can be many sources of acoustic emission in a...

Tests of Full-Size Pretensioned AASHTO Beams with Debonded Strands
A summary of an experimental investigation dealing with the effects of strand debonding on the flexure and shear behavior of simply supported pretensioned AASHTO beams with a cast-in-place...
