Modular expansion joints are structures that are submitted to severe fatigue load conditions. This may lead to unexpected premature damage of the structure which, besides the economic cost of repair, may limit the regular service of the bridge. To better understand the dynamic behaviour of modular expansion joints, different over rolling tests...

Steel is discarded by railway owners as a material for underground structures near railway lines, due to uncertainty over increased corrosion by DC stray currents stemming from the traction power system. This paper presents a large scale field test in which stray currents interference of a sheet pile wall was monitored in realistic conditions....

One of the existing modular expansion joints of the Martinus Nijhoff Bridge in the Netherlands was monitored with the purpose of extending its service life for on year until replacement in 2011. Based on an analyses of the failure mechanisms of this (type of) joint, strain gauges were used as sensors and applied at centre and crossbeams. Chosen...

Steel structures near DC powered railways are expected to be affected by stray current interference. This causes accelerated corrosion rates. Therefore steel is often not used as a building material in these cases, although certain advantages over the alternative material concrete exist. These advantages can include amongst others costs, shorter...
