Analytical and Experimental Studies on New Composite Bridge Using Concrete Filled Steel I-girder
A new steel/concrete composite girder was proposed and applied to continuous girder bridges. The area surrounded by the upper and lower flanges and the web are filled with concrete (CFIG: Concrete filled I-section Girder) at the intermediate support.…
The Effect of Self-Consolidating Concrete on the Shear Performance of Beam Elements: A Critical Review of Current Literature
The span length and general size of bridges across the Queensland road Network have increased substantially in recent years. This has led to the development of larger girder section sizes, along with the requirement to provide increased amounts of…
Fabrication and Erection of Structural Steelwork - The New AS/NZS 5131 and Engineers Risk Mitigation
This paper examines the initiative by the Australian Steel Institute to underwrite development of the new Australian Standard AS/NZS 5131 ‘Structural Steelwork – Fabrication and Erection’, the new ‘National Structural Steelwork Specification (NSSS)…

Across the globe, a huge sum is spent each year in maintaining and protecting steel infrastructure assets against corrosion. Most of the steel assets are protected using protective coatings or coating systems.
The Use of Weathering Steel in Australian Bridges
Weathering steel is a high strength low alloy steel that, in a suitable environment, may be left unpainted due to the formation of an adherent protective rust “patina”. This patina significantly retards the corrosion rate, which is 5 to 10 times…
Fatigue Tests on Steel Plates with Inclined Cracks Strengthened with Different CFRP Properties
Carbon-fibre-reinforced-polymer (CFRP) strengthening of steel components with tensile cracks has gained significant attention in the civil engineering applications due to the advantages of the composite material in upgrading the performance level of…
Bridge Design Challenges on the Waikato Expressway Huntly Section, New Zealand
The Huntly Section is a new NZ$415M section of the Waikato Expressway running between Hamilton and Auckland. It will connect the recently completed Ngaruawahia and Ohinewai sections on a route that traverses the Taupiri Ranges within a deep cutting…
Shear in Prestressed Concrete I-girder Bridges
Prestressed concrete I girder bridges constructed in the 1960s and 70s have the potential to restrict transport productivity because their AS 5100.7 assessments can be poor despite satisfactory inservice performance. The primary issue is the shear…
Monash Freeway Bridge Strengthening Project: Constructability of Carbon Fibre Rods Under Constrained Traffic and Environmental Conditions
Strict environmental requirements and the standard specification and procedure for installing carbon fibre bridge strengthening system have naturally led to the works being undertaken during warmer months and on sections of the bridge that have been…
