Magnetic Perturbation Imaging for Prestressed Concrete Evaluation
Many prestressed concrete bridge structures in the United States and other parts of the world are over thirty years old and have shown various signs of distress. Corrosion or fracture...

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....

Maintenance of Diaphragm-Girder Connections
Fatigue cracking at diaphragm-girder connections and at similar connections of cross-frames and floorbeams have been common in steel highway bridges for the past 20 or 30 years. Fatigue...

A Framework for Performance-Based Seismic Design
The following probabilistic framework for seismic performance assessment is presented as an effective foundation for the development of performance-based guidelines. It suggests a generic...

High Performance Dampers for Bridges
A multi-disciplinary research study investigates the use of shape memory alloys as seismic dampers in bridges. Shape memory alloys are a class of alloys that display several unique characteristics,...

Seismic Analysis and Retrofit of the Amoskeag Bridges
In 1983 AASHTO first offered the design guide for seismic analysis of bridges, which ultimately became a permanent part of the AASHTO Bridge Design Manual in 1990. Prior to this time,...
