Causes of Camber-Loss in Stress-Laminated Wood Bridges

Fatigue Study of R/C Highway Bridge Decks Using Physical Models

Composite Sketch
Composite materials from the aerospace and military sectors are showing promise in highway, bridge and transportation applications. Some of the current and potential applications of composites...

Seismic Response of RC Double-Deck Freeways

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...

Corrosion Resistant Epoxy-Coated Reinforcing Steel
Research conducted in the 1970s to evaluate and develop criteria for nonmetallic coatings to protect steel reinforcing bars embedded in concrete bridge decks from the corrosive action...

A Study of Jointless Bridge Behavior
The pressing need for maintenance free and low construction cost bridges, has increased the interest and activity in building integral or jointless bridges. The investigation of the behavior...

The Normandie Bridge
The Normandie Bridge will have one of the longest cable-stayed spans in the world, i.e. 856 m long. This paper briefly describes the design of the bridge, with the concrete access spans...

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...

Seismic Study of a Cable-Stayed Bridge
The focus of this paper is to investigate the non-linear and linear behavior of a cable-stayed bridge in a seismic environment. Three design features of a cable-stayed bridge are studied:...

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...

Impact of Non-Gaussian pdf on Reliability Estimates for Deep Water Platforms
The offshore community has invested a great deal in the analysis and design of compliant deep water platforms such as tension leg platforms (TLPs) and more recently spar platforms. Tension...

Lightweight Concrete for a Segmental Bridge
Structural lightweight concrete can help increase the stiffness and decrease the mass of a bridge; both are qualities that make the structure more likely to survive an earthquake. Ordinarily,...

Characteristics of the US Highway Bridge Population
Characteristics of US highway bridges are summarized, and conditions of national, regional, and state bridges are analyzed with respect to structural deficiency. The overall patterns in...

Bridge Condition Rating Using Fuzzy Sets and an Eigenvector of Priority Settings
A simplified methodology for combining the condition rating of the various elements of bridge components (deck, superstructure or substructure) is developed using a multi-attributive decision...

Beyond CPM: The Deck-of-Cards Paradigm

Graphite Prestressed Concrete Deck for Navy Facilities

The Use of Type K Expansive Cement Concrete for New Construction and Rehabilitation of Concrete Bridge Decks

Flat-Plate Repairs Using Innovative Shotcrete Applications

Historic Yorktown: New Bridge Keeps Old Design
In historic Yorktown, Va., the best solution to reconstructing an obsolete 1952 bridge was to keep its unique design while widening it for '90s traffic. Like the original,...
