handrail. This paper demonstrates that aluminium alloys are in principle also suited for heavy loaded structures, such as decks of traffic bridges and helicopter landing platforms. Recent developments in fatigue research is discussed and future research, required for full application of aluminium in heavy loaded structures is identified. The...

As part of an extensive renovation program, Arup Netherlands delivered engineering services for the strengthening and renovation of 8 large steel bridges in the Dutch highway network. Strengthening of the riveted splice connections at the ends of the hangers of a steel arch bridge on the Dutch A2 motorway represented a significant challenge to...

Fatigue life or crack growth predictions that use information from crack inspections have been applied to offshore structures and, in recent years, also to steel bridges. Apart from inspection data, a probabilistic crack growth model and knowledge of the distributions and correlations of the variables are required for such predictions. The...

The 'Hovenring' is a bicycle roundabout flyover built as a signature bridge with a central steel pylon carrying a circular bridge deck suspended through stay-cables. Shortly after installation of the bridge, the stay-cables turned out to vibrate in the wind due to vortex shedding. These vibrations have possibly caused fatigue damage in the...

Applications of aluminium have grown considerably in building and civil engineering the last decade, which is due to various aspects: light weight, durability and maintenance, use of extrusions. The paper starts with a short history of aluminium bridges and then focuses on aluminium bridges in the Netherlands. The design of 58 bridges for an...
