Seeking light and transparent bridge designs, engineers and architects have found an efficient and artistic way to fulfill their requirements: steel tubular bridges. In these modern tubular truss bridges, welded K-joints have been shown to be critically susceptible to fatigue failure induced by repeated traffic loads. Despite the research devoted to the study of fatigue during the last 35 years, especially in the offshore oil industry, estimating their fatigue resistance of tubular truss… CONTINUE READING
