Integral abutment bridges are becoming more popular in Europe, but the traditions differ from country to country. This leads to different technical solutions for the same problem in each country. A… (More)
Since mid 2005 a European R&D project, INTAB (Economic and Durable Design of Composite Bridges with Integral Abutments), is running with support from RFCS, RFSR-CT-2005-00041, and national spon ...
The cost of maintenance is an ever- growing problem for road administrations around the world, and bridges are no exception to the rule. One way to reduce the need for future maintenance, as well a… (More)
Field tests of two jointless bridges are presented, focusing on the magnitude and significance of earth pressure behind the abutments. The Haavistonjoki Bridge is a 56-m-long, continuous three-span… (More)
AbstractOne of the most commonly discussed problems regarding bridges with integral abutments is the influence of longitudinal elongation of the superstructure as a result of seasonal temperature… (More)
Integral abutment bridges are bridges without any expansion joints, and their largest benefits are the lower construction- and maintenance costs. In order to build longer integral bridges it might be… (More)
Clamped abutment piles for integral abutment bridges experience both a compressive normal force and bending load cycles stemming from daily and yearly temperature variations. This paper describes e… (More)
In integral abutment bridges clamped abutment piles are in addition to a compressive normal force subjected to bending load cycles from daily and yearly temperature variations. Through experiments ...
The study deals with the development of long jointless bridges with a focus on soil- structure interaction. The instrumentation of Haavistonjoki Bridge was completed in the autumn of 2003. The data… (More)
Preliminary results obtained from short term test-loading are used to illustrate possibilities of FEM used to calibrate complex interaction characteristics between a pile and soil in a bridge with… (More)
