Development of optimal concrete sealant techniques by Robert L Mullen( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though concrete coatings and sealants have been known to prolong the service life of concrete highway structures for some time, ignorance of the effect that moisture encapsulation has on the performance of such surface treatments persists. This study invesigates the phenomenon of moisture encapsulation and how concrete sealants and coatings influence concrete freeze/thaw durability and moisture migration

Evaluation of improved shear key designs for multi-beam box girder bridges by Arthur A Huckelbridge( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory tests were conducted to investigate the problem of shear key failure in multi-beam prestressed box girder bridges and to propose a new shear key design. Failure of shear keys will typically not only compromise the load-sharing mechanism between adjacent girders, but also may lead to the failure of the deck waterproofing system, with attendant corrosion problems. The tests consisted of monitoring relative displacements occurring across intergirder joints, produced by a simulated concentrated wheel load

Feasibility study for simplified load testing of slab bridges by Arthur A Huckelbridge( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this investigation was to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining meaningful quantitative structural response data, suitable for rating purposes, from short span reinforced slab bridges by simplified load testing. Such simplified load testing could be carried out by regular inspection personnel, utilizing preweighed vehicles for loading the structures and collecting the resulting deflection data with readily available instrumentation, such as mechanical dial gages, etc. Quantitative in-situ load performance data, combined with conventional visual inspection, would provide a much sounder basis for load rating than visual inspection alone. Before such a rating procedure can be developed, however, it must be verified that useful data can be collected by the "low-tech" instrumentation alluded to

Development of a load test for the evaluation and rating of short-span reinforced concrete slab bridges by Amy Keitel( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There exists in the state of Ohio a large inventory of short span reinforced concrete bridges, particularly on rural secondary highways, whose actual structural reliability cannot be accurately ascertained. Quite often little or no documentation exists to assist the responsible local jurisdictions in assessing the ability of these bridges to safely carry modern truck loading

Monitoring and analysis of data obtained from moisture temperature recording stations by J. Ludwig Figueroa( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performance of asphalt concrete pavements is in part affected by the seasonal variations of the resilient modulus of the AC layer and of the subgrade soil. To determine the variation of these parameters throughout Ohio, seven moisture-temperature-rainfall recording stations, previously installed during an Ohio Department of Transportation-funded project, and two additional ones installed during this project, were monitored for an additional period of 2-1/2 years, These stations, located to include various climatic zones and the four most common soil types within the state, recorded air, asphalt concrete and subgrade soil temperature, rainfall and moisture content (or degree of saturation) of the subgrade soil on a two-hour basis. Recorded data led to the development of polynomial equations to calculate the average asphalt concrete pavement temperature from the air temperature and to the division of the state into three temperature zones: Northern, Central and Southern. Recorded depths of frost penetration indicated average depths of 45 to 61 cm. within the southern zone and of 70 to 52 cm. within the northern zone. Similarly, the northern and the southern zones experience an average of 7 to 12 and 4 to 5 freeze-thaw cycles, respectively. The degree of saturation calculated from moisture and temperature sensor readings varied form about 90% to 100% throughout the monitoring period. The late spring to early summer consistently led to a higher degree of saturation at all depths. Finally, a method to back calculate the resilient modulus of subgrade soils (Eri) at the break point from measured FWD deflections was developed. Seasonal averages of this modulus were obtained at each of six station locations where FWD testing was conducted. Seasons were ranked in terms of expected higher resilient modulus. The designated "fall" testing period (early fall) showed the highest followed by "summer," "winter" and "spring" in decreasing order. Determined monthly and seasonal variation of material properties will find immediate application as inputs in mechanistic-empirical pavement design procedures

Predicting fatigue lifetime from strain histograms in an abbreviated time window by Arthur A Huckelbridge( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work presents the development of a methodology for estimating the year in which AASHTO-prescribed fatigue lifetime expectations will be reached for a structural detail on a steel highway bridge. The methodology is based upon a year-round strain monitoring program of an ensemble of 24 bridge structures, located on Ohio highways of 8 different functional classes. The data from the strain monitoring program was processed into a normalized temporal representation of the expected accumulation of fatigue damage for the 8 different highway functional classes studied. An algorithm is presented to estimate the annual damage for a particular detail from a site-specific strain histogram, collected over an abbreviated time window. The extrapolation of the short-term histogram to an annual fatigue damage estimate is carried out utilizing the normalized temporal damage accumulation model for the appropriate highway functional class. Sample statistics and probability theory are used to construct confidence intervals associated with the estimate of annual damage. Projected growth rates of traffic volume and/or truck weights can be readily incorporated into the lifetime projection
