One of the most important questions that structural engineers all over the world are dealing with is the safety of the existing structures. In the Netherlands, there are a large number of transversely prestressed bridge decks that have been built in the last century and now need to be investigated for their structural safety under the actual ...

The research subject of this paper is the bearing capacity of transversely prestressed concrete bridge decks between concrete girders under concentrated loads. Experiments on a 1:2 scale model of this bridge were carried out in the laboratory and a 3D nonlinear finite element model was developed in the FEA software package DIANA to study the...

In the Netherlands, most of the bridges were built more than 50 years ago and it is essential for designers to find out if these bridges are safe for modern traffic especially in shear since that was not considered in design recommendations before 1976. Detailed experiments have been carried out in the laboratory to investigate punching shear...

One of the major challenges facing the designers today is to investigate if the old bridges are still safe for modern traffic. The current research deals with this question by taking into account compressive membrane action (CMA) in determining the capacity of reinforced and transversely prestressed con-crete decks. CMA can significantly affect...

In the Netherlands, there is a need to determine the capacity of bridge decks as a large number of them were built back in the 60’s and 70’s. Since then, not only a lot of additional safety requirements have been incorporated into the modern codes but the traffic flow has also increased drastically. The current research deals with this question...
