Shake Table Studies of a Steel Girder Bridge System with ABC Connections
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) reduces the onsite construction time by utilizing prefabricated elements. Connections between prefabricated elements are critical in high seismic areas to maintain the integrity of ...
Preliminary Experimental Study on the Effect of Live Load on the Seismic Response of Highway Bridges
The objective of this research was to conduct a preliminary study of the effect of live load on the seismic response of highway bridges using a large-scale model of a 3-span bridge supported on multiple shake tables. This ...
Experimental and Analytical Seismic Studies of a Four-Span Bridge System with Composite Piers
Funded by the National Science Foundation through the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) research program, a major multi-university research project has been in progress at the University of Nevada, Reno. ...
Seismic Response of a Highway Bridge with Structural Fuses for Seismic Protection of Piers
Previous research and experience demonstrates that post-earthquake downtime can cripple the transportation network, damage the economic viability of the region, and possibly have more far-reaching consequences due to the ...
Simplifying Cast-in-Place Joint Design Using ABC Pocket Connection Details in High Seismic Regions
Accelerated bridge construction (ABC) utilizes precast members to minimize on-site construction time, making it an appealing alternative to conventional cast-in-place (CIP) construction. The connections between these ...
Cost and Ecological Feasibility of Using Ultra-High Performance Concrete in Highway Bridge Piers
There is a growing interest in expanding the use of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) from bridge deck joints for accelerated bridge construction to complex architectural and advanced structural applications. The high ...
