It is now well established that concrete deck slabs of slab-on-girder bridges subjected to concentrated loads develop an internal arching system provided that certain conditions of confinement of the… (More)
Contents: Principles of Load Distribution; Calculation of Characterizing Parameters; Bridge Responses; Methods for Longitudinal Moments in Shallow Superstructures; Methods for Longitudinal Shears in… (More)
This book discusses design and construction methods for soil-steel bridges, focusing on ways to avoid distress and failure as well as on means to restore bridges in disrepair. Chapters also cover the… (More)
The grillage analogy method for analyzing bridge superstructures has been in use for quite some time. The idealization of a bridge by a grillage is not axiomatic and is not without pitfalls. An… (More)
This book develops a bridge analysis method known as the semicontinuum method. It is a refined method requiring only a small microcomputer while retaining the accuracy and versatility of other… (More)
Experience with field testing of highway bridges in Ontario, Canada, during recent years shows that nearly every bridge has some aspect of behavior that can escape the attention of even experienced… (More)
An ultimate load test on a short-span simply supported bridge having six rolled-steel girders and a noncomposite deck slab is described. The main conclusions drawn from the test are as follows: (1)… (More)
Abstract In seeking to understand the dynamic behaviour of historic stone structures, eight representative walls were constructed and tested under in-plane free vibration conditions. Each wall… (More)
Since the advent of the latest National building code of Canada, the level of intervention required to meet seismic requirements for the rehabilitation of heritage buildings has increased significa...
