Borjigin, Sudanna; Kim, Chul-Woo; Chang, Kai-Chun; Sugiura, KunitomoNon-linear seismic response analysis of vehicle-bridge interactive systemsSteel Construction1/20152-8Articles

Kurzfassung

The intention of this study is to investigate how vehicles on highway bridges affect the seismic responses of the bridges under strong ground motions. Most highway bridge design codes do not consider the live load in the seismic design of highway bridges because of the low probability of the two events of the critical live load and an earthquake occurring at the same time. As a result, little attention has been paid to the influence of vehicle loads on the seismic responses of highway bridges. However, considering the high probability of traffic jams on urban roads, it is preferable to examine and clarify the dynamic interaction effect of vehicles on road bridges while subjected to seismic loads. In this study, the vehicle-bridge-ground motion interactions are realized by combining ABAQUS and MATLAB. ABAQUS provides a GUI environment to establish the numerical bridge model and apply the seismic forces, while MATLAB provides a platform to control the iterations in both time and force increments. As a preliminary study, a simplified 3D pier-beam bridge model loaded with multiple vehicles with two degrees of freedom moving at a constant speed has been considered. When subjected to identical, strong seismic loadings, it was observed that the transverse accelerations of the bridge with moving vehicles are smaller than those without moving vehicles. Further, permanent deformation occurs after earthquakes because of yielding at the bottom of the pier; it was observed that the permanent deformations of the bridge with moving vehicles tend to be smaller than those without moving vehicles.

Tsubomoto, Masahiko; Kawatani, Mitsuo; Mori, KengoTraffic-induced vibration analysis of a steel girder bridge compared with a concrete bridgeSteel Construction1/20159-14Articles

Kurzfassung

At the preliminary design stage for a highway bridge 81 m long, a three-span continuous girder, including a span of about 30 m, is preferable from the point of construction cost. Generally, the concern is that girder bridges with spans of 30 m, which have a fundamental natural frequency of about 3 Hz, have large traffic-induced vibrations due to the coupling dynamic response with heavy vehicles having a bouncing natural frequency of about 3 Hz. Furthermore, large traffic-induced vibration in girder bridges causes low-frequency sound (LFS) as one of the environmental vibration problems. Two kinds of girder bridge with a length of 81 m - a concrete hollow slab bridge and an eight-girder steel bridge with the same spans - are proposed. For assessing the low-frequency sound radiated from bridges, firstly, the traffic-induced vibrations of two kinds of girder bridge are compared with each other by analysing the coupling dynamic response of bridges due to moving heavy vehicles in a dynamic system.

Hashimoto, Kunitaro; Kayano, Makio; Suzuki, Yasuo; Sugiura, Kunitomo; Watanabe, EiichiStructural safety assessment of continuous girder bridge with fatigue crack in web plateSteel Construction1/201515-20Articles

Kurzfassung

This paper, which focuses on a fatigue crack found in a main girder of a continuous steel girder bridge, assesses the remaining structural safety of the steel bridge with such a fatigue crack in order to judge whether or not urgent action such as closure to traffic or necessary temporary repairs and strengthening should be carried out. Therefore, an elastic-plastic finite displacement analysis is carried out for the continuous three-span non-composite steel girder bridge with four main girders in which a fatigue crack about 1.1 m long in the web plate of the main girder was discovered during an inspection. From the analysis results it is found that the load redistribution function of the multiple main girder system was effective and the remaining load-carrying capacity of such a bridge system is such that there will be no sudden collapse of the entire bridge.

Kennedy, Stephen J.; Martino, Aldo E.SPS bridge decks for new bridges and strengthening of existing bridge decksSteel Construction1/201521-27Articles

Kurzfassung

The sandwich plate system (SPS) is a structural composite material made up of two metal plates bonded to a polyurethane elastomer core. SPS delivers high strength and stiffness, making it an excellent alternative to conventional stiffened steel and reinforced concrete. For strengthening of orthotropic bridge decks, SPS Overlay can be used to create a stiff bridge deck without removing the original plates. The renewed deck improves the distribution of wheel loads across the longitudinal stiffening elements, decreases deck curvatures associated with large concentrated wheel loads, extends the fatigue life of fatigue-critical welds and increases the life of the wearing surface and the whole bridge. For new bridge applications, prefabricated SPS bridge deck plates reduce the dead load by up to 70 % compared with concrete bridge decks, thus allowing bridges to carry significantly greater live load without the need for girder or pier strengthening. Deck replacement can be completed while leaving the steel or concrete girders in place or, where speed of erection is critical, pre-assembled longitudinal deck-girder units can be used.

Lener, GerhardSteel bridges - numerical simulation of total service life including fracture mechanic conceptsSteel Construction1/201528-32Articles

Kurzfassung

The assessment of the total service life of a steel structure should gain importance in the near future due to the increasing significance of building preservation and building modernization. The main cause of the failure of existing structural steelwork under cyclic loading effects is material fatigue. Most steel structures are, however, failure-tolerant. For economic reasons, this behaviour can be considered by including the crack propagation phase in the assessment. This contribution presents newly developed software tools and the results of some simulations of the total lifetimes of existing structures.

Mano, Toshihisa; Mangerig, IngbertTensile load-carrying behaviour of elastomeric bearingsSteel Construction1/201533-41Articles

Kurzfassung

Elastomeric bearings for seismic isolation applications can be subjected to tensile loads depending on the geometrical configuration, high vertical seismic motion or excessive horizontal deformation due to the elongated-period horizontal motion. It is a known fact that cavities develop within elastomeric material when it undergoes a certain amount of tensile force in a very constrained condition since a high hydrostatic tensile stress builds up. Once these cavities have developed, the tensile stiffness of the bearing drops dramatically. This paper contributes to understanding this phenomenon itself and its influence on the basic properties of elastomeric bearings. For this purpose, two types of elastomeric bearing were tested and the cavitation phenomenon observed. Moreover, those test results are compared with the FE simulation results from the modified hyperelastic material model with the cavity damage criterion. The two-phase softening model presented here can simulate the real softening behaviour of elastomeric bearings well, and it may even help us grasp a better insight into the cavitation phenomenon.

Höglund, TorstenCold-formed members - comparison between tests and a unified design method for beam-columnsSteel Construction1/201542-52Articles

Kurzfassung

In [1] a unified method for the design of steel beam-columns is presented. The method has been checked for rolled steel beam-columns and extruded aluminium beam-columns. It is included in Eurocode 9 [19] for aluminium members and it is proposed to be included also in Eurocode 3 Part 1-3 [16] as well, but then it needs to be checked for typical cold-formed sections.
Cold-formed sections are usually un-symmetric and thin-walled, for instance channel sections or C-shaped sections (lipped channels). When used as compression members, local buckling causes a redistribution of the longitudinal stress which leads to a shift of the effective centroid. The shift causes overall bending and reduces the column strength when the member is compressed between pinned ends. In fixed-ended columns, however, the shift of the effective centroid is balanced by a shift of the applied force and bending is not introduced [6]. As a result, the strength of fixed-ended channel column exceeds that of a pin-ended column of the same effective length [7].
Using effective width for the flanges of channels e.g. according to EN 1993-1-5 [17] gives conservative result as the centroid of the effective section is too close to the web. The mixed effective width/effective thickness method for outstand elements given in Annex D of EN 1993-1-3 [16] is the basis in the following interpretations.

Bedair, OsamaAn analytical expression to determine "realistic" shear buckling stress in cold-formed lipped channelsSteel Construction1/201553-58Articles

Kurzfassung

Current North American and European design provisions ignore the rotational restraint when evaluating local web shear buckling stresses in cold-formed steel channels. This paper offers a new analytical expression for computing local buckling shear stresses in cold-formed channel members taking into account the rotational restraints imposed by the flanges and the lips. The expression derived is suitable for hand calculations and can replace current code expressions in order to achieve economical steel designs. Comparisons with existing design formulas currently used in practice for the limiting conditions show a difference within 5 %.
