In steel bridges, fatigue is often a major problem limiting the load-carrying capacity and the residual life of existing bridges. The correct identification of fatigue-prone details in a bridge, along with well-planned inspection routines and successful strengthening and repair schedules, can contribute. Applicability of the C-S criterion is investigated by estimating the fatigue damage of critical welded connections and is compared with the fatigue damage computed according to Eurocode EN

This paper reviews the results of a comprehensive investigation including more than fatigue damage cases, reported for steel and composite bridges. The damage cases are categorized according to types of detail. The mechanisms behind fatigue damage in e.

The second type of interaction (transverse bending of the floor beams) has also resulted in fatigue damage in many steel bridge types. One example is shown in Figure In this case, the upper flange of the floor beam is cut short near the floor beam to main truss connection, Cited by:

New fatigue tests performed in the s with girder and full-scale specimens indicated that the tests performed with small-scale specimens overestimated the fatigue resistance of structural details [.

In such cases, local repair methods such as Repair A (Crack removal), Repair B (Reweld), and/or Repair D (Reweld + post-weld surface treatment) can be effective. However, the possibility of new weld defects occurring in the repaired welds can be high due to poor work environments, such as space limitations for welding and difficult welding positions, which may lead to additional unforeseen by: 2.

On the subject of improving our understanding of the fatigue behavior and design of new bridge structures, Sjaarda, Porter, West, and Walbridge investigate the fatigue performance of welded shear studs either in cast-in-place decks or concentrated in precast deck pockets to enable ABC in their paper “Fatigue Behavior of Welded Shear Studs in.

Fatigue damage accumulation in aluminum highway bridges under random loading is studied. The fatigue life of welded joints has been determined both experimentally and from a fracture mechanics analysis. In the experimental part of the investigation, fatigue test series on welded plate test specimens have been carried.

Over the past four years, extensive research has been initiated on the application of ultrasonic impact treatment (UIT) for fatigue enhancement of fracture-critical details in steel bridges. The research is particularly relevant in light of the development of high strength steels and their use within the bridge by: The course will begin with an introduction to the types fatigue factors encountered in metals to help the learner build up their knowledge, before turning towards bridge specific fatigue issues.

Inspection and repair methods will be covered, before finishing with examples and case studies looking at fatigue design and assessment for both new and existing bridges.

The tungsten inert gas (TIG) arc remelting process increases fatigue strength and can be used to repair fatigue damage. It seems to reshape the profile of the weld toe, and raise the tensile strength by increasing the hardness of the TIG-processed area.

Because they are usu­ ally in a compression area, not much concern has been given to inspection of them in the past. At least one railway and several highway departments have suffered.

Introduction. In the AASHTO Guide Specifications for Fatigue Evaluation of Existing Steel Bridges (AASHTO, ) adopted the NCHRP Report 1, 2which represents a probabilistic limit-state approach for fatigue evaluation of steel bridges. A major component of this is the use of a special fatigue truck which is based on actual truck traffic spectra from 30 sites nationwide and more Cited by:.
