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...

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...
