Recent studies show an increase in the population of beavers, nutria and other rodents in vast regions of central Europe over the last 15 years. Unfortunately, this caused in many instances considerable damage on large rivers along dykes and earthworks in the floodplain areas, leading to an increased risk of bank failures. However, most of these...

With growing pressure on the construction industry to be more resource efficient, to reduce waste and to lower embodied carbon, material reuse strategies are critical to meet targets, especially for steel. Indeed, steel recycling is an energy and carbon intensive process, offering only approximately 50% energy savings [1] and 75% [2, 3] over new...

Double-shear steel-to-timber joints of beech laminated veneer lumber (LVL) with slotted-in steel plates using very high strength steel (VHSS) dowels have been investigated. Tensile tests on full-scale joints with one, two, three and six dowels have been carried out, using both VHSS and mild steel dowels. The goal...

Chloride induced reinforcement corrosion is the most common degradation mechanisms for reinforced concrete structures. The service life of concrete structures is normally predicted by estimating the rate of chloride ingress and the necessary time to initiate reinforcement corrosion. Normally, chloride ingress is modeled as a diffusive process in...

In this work, peel tests were used to assess the adhesion quality between carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) and carbon steel plates. The tests were performed according to the ASTM standard of floating roller peel tests (D3167–97) with a new specimen layup. The layup and geometry of specimens was defined in order to have the CFRP as the...

This study examines the load and resistance factor design calibration for the ultimate pullout limit state for steel strip reinforced soil walls (SSWs). The tensile loads and pullout capacities of reinforcement strips that were measured during full-scale tests are compared with predicted (nominal) values using analytical models recommended by...

Chloride-induced corrosion is a point of big concern in reinforced concrete (RC) structures. To monitor the actual health and to predict the remaining service-life of structures, it is important to understand the structural behaviour and the failure mechanism of structures exposed to chlorides under fatigue loading conditions. A beam test,...

In order to adequately characterize the fatigue response of the various membranes with surrounding multilayer surfacing layers on orthotropic steel decks and collect the necessary parameters for FE modeling, the details of the cyclic Membrane Adhesion Tester (MAT) are introduced. The fatigue damage in membrane interface is related to the amount...

Commonly coatings are used to protect metals from corrosion. Different types of coatings are available and according to their characteristics they provide different levels of protection. In order to evaluate the performance of the coating, it is fundamental to have a methodology that is reliable and efficient even when applied to different kinds...

Porous asphalt shows excellent performance in both noise reduction and water drainage. Although porous asphalt has these great qualities, its service life is much shorter (sometimes only half) compared to dense graded asphalt roads. Ravelling, which is the loss of aggregate particles from the surface layer, is the main damage mechanism of porous...

Based on microcapsule technology, a new type of self-healing system for cementitious composites is established. The performance of the system was characterized by means of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy of steel bars immersed in a simulated concrete environment. The results demonstrate strong inhibition of chloride-induced corrosion when...

Due to various advantages of Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) decks, the FRP to steel composite bridge system is being increasingly used in new bridge structures as well as rehabilitation projects for old bridges. This paper focuses on the mechanical behaviours and failure modes of the adhesively-bonded joins between FRP sandwich decks and steel...

Light weight orthotropic steel bridge decks have been widely utilized for bridges in seismic zones, movable bridges and long span bridges. In the last three decades, severe problems were reported in relation to asphaltic surfacing materials on orthotropic steel deck bridges. Earlier investigations have shown that the bonding strength of membrane...

The French five-point bending test (5PBT) provides a laboratory scale test that allows studying the fatigue resistance of surfacing systems on orthotropic steel deck bridges (OSDB). The surfacing structure for OSDB in the Netherlands consists mostly of multilayer system: top porous asphalt layer, guss asphalt layer, steel deck and two membrane...

Due to lightweight and flexibility, orthotropic steel deck bridges become popular the last decades but several problems were reported in relation to asphalt surfacing materials such as rutting, cracking, loss of bond between the surfacing system and steel deck. In the Netherlands a surfacing structure for orthotropic steel bridge decks mostly...
