Hybrid structures consisting of FRP(fiber reinforce polymer) composite decks<br/>connected to a steel girder superstructure are gaining more attention by combining the stiffness of steel members with good fatigue endurance and high strength to weight ratio of FRP. However, when composite material FRP is exposed to elevated temperature,...

This study derives the fatigue resistance of welded details in orthotropic decks using structural stress (hot-spot stress where possible) based on tests described in literature and tests by the authors. The data are supported with linear elastic fracture mechanics simulations. Details covered are the rib to deck weld, the crossbeam to deck...

Membranes of sufficient bonding characteristics could improve the integrity of the multi-layer structures on orthotropic steel deck bridges (OSBDs), enhancing thus the structural response of these systems and, ultimately, their service life. In this research, full-scale experiments were performed at the LINTRACK accelerated pavement testing...

Nowadays, most of the historical bridges (Amsterdam, 2019) of Amsterdam do not meet the load-bearing criteria of the current design code (Eurocode: 2012). This has several reasons. It comes partly because of the overdue of the maintenance (Amsterdam, 2019) but also because the traffic load for which the bridge has been designed, is lower than...

Movable bridge decks experience critical expansion in summer, leading to uncertainty and unpredictability in its availability doe to improper docking and safety hazard. If the bridges are not cooled soon, the inertia of expansion stays, causing prolongation of availability problems. Structural health monitoring of such bridges with a predictive...

The shear strength evaluation of reinforced concrete bridge deck slabs by accurate models can indicate strength reserves and avoid costly operations necessary for the extension of their lifetime. This article introduces an approach that extends the Critical Shear Displacement Theory model (CSDT) for reaching higher levels of approximation of...

Highway traffic bridges have been subjected to increasing loads over the past decades. Some of the movable bridge leafs in these highway bridges were constructed in the 1960s and they are now close to the end of their intended life span. These bridge leafs were typically designed and executed with hardwood deck boards. In the initial design...

Design optimization of fiber-reinforced polymeric (FRP) composite products is essential to facilitate their applications in engineering structures. For bridge structures, the main design optimization goals are the reduction of FRP material consumption and the structure weight, which aim to reduce the initial construction cost and achieve a...

Highway bridges along the coast and small river bridges in mountainous regions can be submerged during storm surges or strong rainfall events, respectively. Loss of serviceability during these conditions can dramatically hamper the evacuation plan and the capacity for emergency transportation, thus it is essential to ensure the stability of...

Collapse of partially or fully submerged river bridges as a result of river floods is investigated. To this end, post-failure analysis of a bridge in Japan’s Iwate Prefecture that collapsed in 2013 is conducted. Failure of this particular bridge is atypical because piers have also toppled over, which can be attributed to the spread footing...

Full-scale fatigue tests were performed on two retrofitted orthotropic bridge decks (OBDs). The retrofitting systems consist of adding a second steel plate on the top of the existing deck. The aim is to reduce the stresses at the fatigue-sensitive details and therefore extend the fatigue life of the OBD by stiffening the existing deck plate....

Influence of moisture absorption/desorption on the flexural properties of Glass-fibre-reinforced polymer (GFRP) laminates was experimentally investigated under hot/wet aging environments. To characterize mechanical degradation, three-point bending tests were performed following the ASTM test standard (ASTM D790-10A). The flexural properties...

The PhD research is focused on the reinforcement of fatigue cracked orthotropic steel bridge decks (OBD) by adding a second steel plate to the existing deck. The main idea is to stiffen the existing deck plate, which will reduce the stresses at the fatigue sensitive details and extend the fatigue life of the orthotropic bridge decks. Two...

This article describes the behaviour and stress analysis of the crossbeams in orthotropic steel decks with continuous trapezoidal closed stiffeners. The trough stiffener to crossbeam connections, with or without cope holes, influence the behaviour of the crossbeam. The effects can be transferred to effective properties of a beam without cut outs...
