The Development of FRP Strengthening on the Victorian Road Network over the Last 17 Years
The global use of FRP (Fibre Reinforced Polymer) strengthening systems for bridge infrastructure has increased over the last 40 years, typically in North America, Europe and Japan. After a slow beginning, its
State-of-the-art Review on Strengthening Elements of Steel Bridges using CFRP
In the last few decades, the use of carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) for strengthening structures has attracted structural engineers due to its superior properties, such as its high strength-toweight ratio, corrosion resistance and ease of…
Strengthening-By-Stiffening: A New Concept for Strengthening Sheardeficient Thin-walled Steel Girders
Strengthening-By-Stiffening (SBS) is a new concept developed to enhance the strength and performance of shear-deficient thin-walled steel girders. In SBS, pultruded composite sections are bonded to buckling prone web panels to serve as stiffeners.
Rehabilitation of Corrugated Metal Pipe Culverts: Asset management
VicRoads monitors a number of structures along its road networks through the structure monitoring program. In October 2014, VicRoads identified significant corrosion on two triple-cell corrugated metal culverts under the Mornington Peninsula Freeway…
Orbital Loading in Modular Bridge Expansion Joints
Whilst the use of expansion joints is common practice in bridge construction, modular bridge expansion joints are designed to accommodate large longitudinal expansion and contraction movements of bridge superstructures. In addition to supporting…
Corrugated Steel Culvert Lining Systems: Innovative Analysis and Design
Standard design techniques for corrugated steel culverts take advantage of the flexibility and ductility of the steel liners to transfer soil loads mainly through axial compression, with very small bending moments, relative to the size of the…
Precast Segmental Box Girder Design and Construction within a Constrained Rail Corridor
The Level Crossing Removal Project: Caulfield to Dandenong involves the removal of nine of Melbourne’s most congested level crossings along the Caulfield to Dandenong rail corridor. Grade separation of the four level crossings between Caulfield and…
Factors Critical to the Quality and Durability of Bonded Anchors used in Bridges and Structural Roadway Components
The use of bonded anchors to make structural connections to concrete surfaces of bridges and structural roadway components has been increasing steadily over the past 15 to 20 years due mainly to the flexibility in design, the ease and efficiency of…
Thermal Response Analysis of Composite Steel Girder Bridges Subjected to Bushfires
The occurrence of fires on bridges usually has a low probability but it has a high impact on the economic and social aspects. However, bridge design codes and standards do not explicitly incorporate fire safety concepts in design stage which is in…
Ensuring Quality and Durability in Concrete Construction for Major Infrastructure
A high level of quality during construction is a fundamental requirement to ensuring that a concrete structure performs its intended purpose and achieves its 100 year design life with minimal maintenance. To this end contractors must control the…
