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 Challenges Faced in Assessing the Durability Risks of Reinforced Concrete Bridges in Aggressive Environments
Durability assessment is increasingly becoming an integral part of infrastructure design projects in Australia. One of the key drivers for this is the requirement by asset owners for optimum whole of life cost, minimum construction period and…
The Torsional Strengthening of Concrete Girders Using the NSM FRP Technique with Different Configurations
The near-surface mounted (NSM) FRP technique has received attention worldwide over the externally bonded FRP strengthening technique. Strengthening of a concrete girders using fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites to flexural and shear…
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…
Strength Enhancement of Fire-damaged RC Circular Bridge Columns using CFRP Fabrics
In recent years the circumferential wrapping with externally-bonded carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites has proven to be a promising method for strengthening concrete structures. This is particularly valuable when repairing concrete…
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…
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…
Weather Resistant Steel As Viable Option For Country Timber Bridge Replacements
Steel in bridge construction in Australia has declined significantly over the last 40 years from around 25% of bridges to as low as 5% of bridges in recent years. The main reasons for this have been the proliferation of precast prestressed concrete…
