Description Behavior of Ontario-type bridge decks on steel girders FB2

F Research Project "Behavior of Ontario-Type Bridge Decks, With and Without Skew" Conducted for Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation.

A full‐scale bridge deck (both cast‐in‐place and precast), detailed in accordance with the Texas State Department of Highways provisions for Ontario‐type decks, and having about 60% of the reinforcement required by the current AASHTO code, performs well under current AASHTO design load levels.

Under service and overload conditions (about three times the current AASHTO design wheel load), the Cited by: BEHAVIOR OF ONTARIO-TYPE BRIDGE DECK ON STEEL GIRDERS: NEGATIVE MOMENT REGION AND LOAD CAPACITY by C.

The prestressed concrete bridge girder shown in Fig. spans m and supports a superimposed dead load G of 6 kN/m and a live load Q of 20 kN/m (excluding self-weight). A mm thick topping slab was cast over the top flange of the beams after full stressing.

The bridge is upgraded for HLPV resulting in an increase in the unfactored live loads applied to the beam. Weiwei Lin, Teruhiko Yoda, in Bridge Engineering, Waterproofing System.

Bridge decks are vulnerable, subject to attack by water and chloride that can lead to deterioration and issues with longevity and durability of the bridge decks.

The installation of an effective waterproofing membrane is therefore an essential part of bridge deck system in addition to the drainage system. e Casting Sequence Construction joints within bridge decks control the sequence of casting bridge decks, either as a result of concrete volume placement constraints, or, in the case of continu- ous steel girders, in order to minimize bridge-deck tension.

Box girders are usually considered for footbridges only for spans over about 30m, and most box girder footbridges adopt an all-steel configuration. The advantage in using an all-steel configuration is that the whole cross section, including parapets, can be fabricated at the works for delivery and erection in complete spans; the weight of such spans is modest and easily handled by a mobile crane.

Prefabricated bridge deck panels are a popular option for new construction and bridge rehabilitation. Further, ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) has become a common option for closure pours between adjacent prefabricated deck elements and between deck elements and the supporting girders.

Abstract. This paper describes the behavior of hybrid girders consisting of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge decks adhesively connected to steel main girders. Two large-scale girders were experimentally investigated at the serviceability and ultimate limit state as well as at failure.

One of the girders was additionally fatigue loaded to 10 million cycles. STATIC AND FATIGUE BEHAVIOR OF GFRP BRIDGE DECKS ADHESIVELY BONDED TO STEEL GIRDERS Prof.

Additionally, various load distribution methodologies (response fraction and beam-line definitions) were assessed to investigate consistency or lack thereof. Providing both experimental investigations and theoretical analyses, this book covers three complementary parts: FRP decks, shear connectors between the deck and steel girders, and the behavior of bridge systems.

To ensure that a steel bridge design can be safely, economically and reliably executed (fabricated, assembled and erected), designers should be aware of the processes of fabrication and erection, the capabilities and limitations of the steelwork contractor and how the design choices affect those article provides guidance on design for construction: it generally follows the.

The use of the empirical deck design method has increased its acceptance due to the economic advantages that it presents when compared to its counterpart, the traditional method.

This can be attributed to the fact that the empirical method provides an appropriate design where the deck withstands stress not only due to the steel reinforcement, but to an implicit arching membrane stress set-up. Providing both experimental investigations and theoretical analyses, this book covers three complementary parts: FRP decks, shear connectors between the deck and steel girders, and the behavior of bridge systems.

The text presents stiffness and strength evaluations for FRP deck panels and FRP deck-girder bridge systems.

CMC Joist & Deck is a leading producer of steel deck, open-web steel joists, long span steel joists and Joist Girders. United Steel Deck, Inc. was established in as a manufacturer of metal roof deck and floor form. The product line was expanded to include composite floor deck, deep roof deck, metal wall & roof panels and related.

BRIDGE DECKS September DESIGN DETAILS FOR BRIDGE DECKS General The following general criteria apply to bridge decks that are constructed compositely in conjunction with concrete girders, steel girders and the top slabs of cast-in-place, post-tensioned box girders. The original Highway Structures Design Handbook was produced by US Steel in the project was subsequently taken over by AISC.

Now, with federal grant money, FHWA, NSBA and HDR Engineering (principal engineer) have completed updating the ent engineers in the field wrote all 19 volumes and six design examples; these have been reviewed by a committee organized.

The book is organized into three complementary parts, covering FRP decks, shear connectors between the deck and steel girders, and the behavior of bridge systems. It outlines analysis and design guidelines for each specific deck type, which can be broadly classified according to their production process as sandwich panels and adhesively bonded.

BRIDGE ORMWORK Cast-in-Place Deck Support-ed on Steel or Precast Girders Formwork details may differ, but the general method of forming slabs is the same whether supported on steel or precast concrete girders.

Formwork members either rest on the lower flange or haunch of the beam, or they are hung with various manufactured devices. As demonstrated in [7], the adhesively bonded connection between bridge decks and steel girders was sufficient to guarantee full load transfer between the top steel flanges and lower deck face panel.

And the in-plane shear stiffness of FRP decks dominated the composite action degree of this composite girder system. bridge (girders, internal and external diaphragms, lateral bracing members, stiffeners, bearings, deck, field splices, etc.); suggestions on steel tub girder detailing; and special considerations for construction of a steel tub girder bridge.

While this book is not a stand-alone steel tub girder design manual, it endeavors to cover. application of these new provisions to the design of straight steel I-section section flexural members is illustrated through the design example presented herein.

The example illustrates the design of a typical three-span continuous straight steel I-girder bridge with spans of ′-0″ – ′-0″ – ′-0″. The ultimate strength characteristics of externally reinforced concrete bridge deck slabs were investigated in this paper.

A 1/3 scale experimental model of a bridge with six girders was constructed for the study. This was the first known set of test results on a bridge model with more than four girders.
