This paper investigates the differences in the predicted fatigue life of transverse butt weld joints and cover-plated beams considering statistically based fitting methods on fatigue test data and comparing the results with the S-N relation proposed in international standards. The test data fitting are performed by employing the Least Square...

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...

Porous concrete is used in many applications that require permeability, noise absorption or thermal insulation. However, its response under dynamic loading is generally not considered. Porous concrete has a characteristic of forming multiple cracks and subsequently fracturing into small fragments when exposed to impact loading. Therefore, with...

The behavior of concrete structures is strongly influenced by the loading rate. Compared to quasi-static loading, on meso and macro-scale concrete loaded by impact loading acts in a different way. First, there is a strain-rate influence on strength, stiffness, ductility, and, second, there are inertia forces activated which influence the...

In this paper the behavior of a squat shear wall subjected to monotonic shear loading is investigated. The study fits into the experimental program driven by CEOS.fr on modeling of the behavior of the tested mocks-ups (monotonic and cycling loading-under prevented or free shrinkage). The shear wall has been analyzed with nonlinear finite element...

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...

Orthotropic deck structures are used in many steel bridges. Due to the typical detailing applied as around 1970, a significant number of deck structures constructed in that period suffer from fatigue damage. In many countries cracks have been detected, in particular in the weld between the deck plate and the trapezoidal stiffener. These cracks...
