Fatigue cracks in the stiffener-to-deck plate connections of orthotropic bridge decks, initiating from the weld toe or root and propagating into the stiffener or weld throat, are experimentally and numerically studied. A statistical analysis of the structural stress is carried out using the experimental data. Automatic welded specimens show a...

Steel Orthotropic Bridge Decks (OBDs) are widely used in long-span and movable bridges. Fatigue resistance analysis plays an important role in the design or assessment of OBDs. One possible fatigue failure is the crack initiating from the weld root of stiffener-to-deck plate connections at crossbeams. A full-scale experimental investigation...

The newest version of prEN 1993-1-8 (2022) prescribes a material factor (Cf) to reduce the design resistance of welded joints made of high strength steel (HSS) mostly due to the lack of available experiments, given the less ductility of HSS compared to mild steel. Additionally, it is stated that the material design yield strength should not...

The building sector is actively researching and reviewing technical solutions for de-construction, driven by the increasing importance of sustainability requirements, as outlined in the EU Commission's ‘Green Deal,‘ which aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Two key research areas in efficient structural design strategies...

The overall competitiveness of offshore wind turbine towers is significantly influenced by the selection of the connection. The following three types of connections: a conventional bolted ring flange (RF) connection, ring flange connection with defined contact surfaces (RFD), and C1 wedge connection (C1-WC) are considered. A quantitative...

Hole patterns are common in engineering design for connections and/or assembly purposes. Geometrical discontinuities can cause stress concentration in localized areas, making them more prone to fatigue crack initiation and influencing the fatigue life of the overall unit. In the past, much effort has been exerted on fatigue modelling of holed...

Bolted end plate connections are traditional solutions for splice joints with square hollow sections (SHS). A cover plate could be used on one side or two adjacent sides of SHS where the end plate is flushed, resulting in two types of asymmetric splice joints. The advantage of the asymmetric joints is that no space is required between the...

To establish the tensile constitutive model of ultra-high performance concrete containing coarse aggregate (CA-UHPC), monotonic and cyclic uniaxial tensile tests for CA-UHPC with fiber volume fractions of 2.5% and 2.0% were conducted. Test results showed that CA-UHPC exhibits approximately linear stress-strain relation up to the tensile strength...

Welded joints are wildly used in the construction sector for fabrication of steel and aluminium structures. A welded joint is traditionally divided into three regions: The Base Material (BM), the Heat-Affected Zone (HAZ), and the Weld Material (WM). The mechanical behaviour of each region varies depending on properties of BM, FM and welding...

In traditional end plate column splices, bolts are placed double symmetrically on the four sides of square hollow sections (SHS). In order to reduce the required gap between the façade and the column, the end plate could be flushed on one or two sides of SHS for the column along the façade or at the corner of a building, respectively. However...

The performance of the Acoustic Emission (AE) technique is significantly dependent on the sensors attached to the structural surface. Although conventional commercially AE sensors, like R15a and WSa sensors, have been extensively employed in monitoring many different structures, they are unavailable in restricted-assess areas. In contrast,...

In this paper, a numerical simulation method of mixed-mode fatigue crack propagation was explored using the extended finite element method (XFEM) and the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT). Both 2D and 3D numerical models were selected to simulate the fatigue crack propagation of steel specimens. Two coefficients were proposed to...

A welded connection consists of three main material zones, the base material (BM), the heat-affect zone (HAZ), and the weld metal (WM). The strength of HAZ depends on the BM grade and manufacturing process, electrode grade, and welding parameters. Under certain conditions, HAZ has the lowest material strength, especially for high-strength...

Debonding crack propagation at the composite-to-steel interface has been found to be an important failure mechanism for wrapped composite joints under static and fatigue loads. Friction at the interface behind the crack tip may deviate fatigue debonding of the joints from the linear-fracture-mechanics behaviour. This paper presents static and...

High strength bolts are widely used in the engineering field due to their good compressive properties. Accurate assessment of the ultimate capacity performance of high strength bolts under combined loading is essential to ensure the safety of steel structures in the connection zone. Existing studies are not sufficiently clear on the economic...

This paper reports an investigation on the tensile resistance of fully-penetrated butt-welded connections of (ultra-)high-strength steels considering the strength softening of the heat-affected zone (HAZ) and the strengthening due to the transverse constraint. Firstly, a parametric study is carried out to analyse the tensile behaviour of...

To investigate the fatigue performance and fatigue damage process of the Orthotropic Steel Deck (OSD) - Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) composite bridge deck, a two-span continuous full-scale specimen was designed and tested under cyclic loading. Test results showed that the fatigue cracks firstly initiated near the lower part of the weld...

This paper shows a part of the analysis of the development of the second generation of the C1 wedge connections for use in offshore wind turbine supporting towers. The novelty of this connection is that bolt failure is avoided under static and fatigue loads. This study aims to investigate the tensile behaviour of the connection by combining...
