Monte Carlo simulation studies were performed to determine fatigue stress distributions due to truck traffic in all stay cables of two existing cable-stayed bridges. One bridge had two planes of stay cables with concrete edge girders, and the other had one plane of stay cables with a concrete box...
Development of a bridge system where composite action is developed after the concrete has hardened would reduce the extent of cracking observed in bridge decks while elimination of shear studs would reduce the potential tripping hazard to workers. The objective of this research was to recommend a...
Possible limit states associated with flange and web deformations in W and HP sections, and posts used in bridge falsework constructions are investigated in this paper. Critical limit states were found to be related to flange bending, post compression, and the interactions associated with complex...
