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 ...
Shear behavior of reinforced concrete bridge pile cap girders strengthened with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strips and CFRP anchors
Externally bonded CFRP strips are ideal for rehabilitating existing members due to their high tensile strength-to-weight ratio, relatively low cost, formability, and expedited installation times. However, without proper ...
Behavior of slender beams without stirrups: effects of load distribution and member depth
Though uniform loading is common in structures, the vast majority of all shear strength tests on slender reinforced concrete members without stirrups have been performed using concentrated loading. Furthermore, the uniform ...
Shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beams with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) under fatigue and sustained loading applications
Four specimens were tested to evaluate the shear performance of beams with carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates and CFRP anchors under fatigue and sustained loading applications. The specimens consisted of ...
Crack-based damage assessment of in-service reinforced concrete bridge members
Reinforced concrete bridge infrastructure is typically evaluated based on visually observed cracking/damage. However, traditional inspection procedures typically provide little-to-no insight into the remaining capacity of ...
