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....

An experimental study has been carried out to assess the adhesion quality of composite-to-metal bonded joints under salt spray ageing conditions. The tests were performed according to the ASTM standard of floating roller peel tests with a new specimen layup. The layup and geometry of the specimen was defined in order to have the Carbon Fiber...

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...
