Changes in The Standards for Managing Corrosion of Bridges in the Future
This paper describes the changes made to two of the Australian Standards, AS/NZS 2312:2002 – ‘Guide to the protection of structural steel against atmospheric corrosion by the use of protective coatings’ and AS 2832.1:2004 – ‘Cathodic protection of…
Proposed Revisions to AS 5100 Part 5: Concrete
Since the introduction of the current Bridge Design Standard in 2004 there have been real advances in both design and construction methods and in materials technology. The Part 5 Standards Australia Sub-Committee (BD090-05) has responded to this…
Time-Variant Performance Indicators for Concrete Bridges Exposed to Corrosion
The life-cycle performance of concrete bridges exposed to corrosion is investigated based on a set of time-variant probabilistic performance indicators including structural reliability, redundancy, robustness and resilience. The performance…
Incorporating ACI 440.8 into AS 5100.5 for FRP Strengthening Via M80 Upgrade Project Case Study
As bridges age and standards evolve, it has become increasingly necessary to strengthen existing bridges as a much cheaper option than replacing bridges as a whole.
The New Zealand Transport Agency Guide to Bridge Painting
The New Zealand Transport Agency (Transport Agency) has recently published ‘Protective Coatings for Steel Bridges: A Guide for Bridge and Maintenance Engineers’. This was prepared by the authors to optimise the long-term capital and maintenance…
Long-Term Performance of Concrete Bridges Under Extreme Events
Reinforced concrete (RC) structures in a marine environment deteriorate with time due to chloride-induced corrosion of reinforcing bars. Corrosion is initiated by chloride contamination if the structures have poor quality concrete and/or inadequate…
Influence of Placement Method on In-Place Hardened Properties Of Deep Foundation Using SCC
The use of self-compacting concrete (SCC) in identified concrete bridge elements has now been incorporated in NSW Roads and Maritime Services QA Specifications B80 as Annexure B80/G. The use of SCC in precast elements is generally allowed while a…
The New Australian Standard AS 5100 Part 9: Timber Bridges
Timber bridges are enjoying a revival around the world for pedestrian and vehicular use. There are several reasons for this. Growing interest in reducing CO2 emissions and increasing sustainability has paved the way in part. New and innovative use…
Life-Cycle Management of Bridges Based on Robustness to Deterioration
In this paper a framework for assessing the robustness of existing reinforced concrete structures under corrosion is presented. Robustness is defined as a structural property related to the tolerance to damage and is measured by the mean performance…
Experimental Testing of Emulative Connections for Accelerated Bridge Construction in Seismic Areas
The use of precast concrete for construction of bridge substructures offers a number of advantages over the conventional use of cast in place (CIP) concrete. These advantages include increased construction speed and quality, minimised traffic…
