Behavior of the cast-in-place splice regions of spliced I-girder bridges
Spliced girder technology continues to attract attention due to its versatility over traditional prestressed concrete highway bridge construction. Relatively limited data is available in the literature, however, for ...
Analysis of the shear behavior of prestressed concrete spliced girders
Implementation of the spliced girder technology in bridges has been growing in recent years. Increased girder lengths can now be realized by splicing shorter precast segments to produce a long span. The research conducted ...
Short-term and time-dependent stresses in precast network arches
Due to their structural efficiency and architectural elegance, concrete arches have long been used in bridge applications. However, the construction of concrete arches requires significant temporary supporting structures, ...
Investigating delamination behavior of curved post-tensioned concrete structures
The wall delamination failure of a containment structure at a Florida nuclear power facility was attributed to improper de-tensioning sequence and low quality concrete. Few analytical investigations have shown that the ...
