    LOOK at the beam bridge images on the poster. TESTthe strength of the beam bridge card model, using a stapler or another object of similar size. ANSWERthe questions below, using the images and model. Bridge Investigation Worksheet: Beam Bridges Over WHICH obstacles do you commonly find beam bridges? roads/highways canyons/valleys creeks/streams.   RCC T-BEAM BRIDGES • T-Beam construction consists of a transversely reinforced slab deck which spans across to the longitudinal support girders. • T-Beam bridges are economical for spans 12m to 18m. • Optimum lateral spacing of longitudinal girders is typically between m to 3m.

    strength evaluation of m-beam bridge deck slabs The cost of M-beam decks may be reduced by increasing the beam spacing to 2 m. However, as this calls into question the strength of the standard mm slab under the action of the abnormal vehicle wheel loading, a series of relevant tests on a 1/3 scale model was carried out.

A proof test is described on a short-span reinforced concrete T-beam bridge without construction drawings, in the absence of which the bridge was posted by using only engineering judgment, to a maximum vehicle weight of 9t.

A systematic proof test conducted with the help of controlled incremental loads, and some instrumentation, confirmed that the posting on the bridge can be safely increased.

Title: Strength of Concrete T-Beam Bridges Author(s): David B. Beal Publication: Symposium Paper Volume: 88 Issue: Appears on pages(s): Keywords: bridges (structures); deterioration; evaluation; field tests; loads (forces); load tests (structural); reinforced con-crete; strength; T-beams Date: 11/1/ Abstract: A series of static live load tests were performed on two concrete T-beam Cited by: 1.

Evaluation of the LVL T-beam bridges utilized pro-cedures and equipment previously developed by FPL (Ritter et al. A description of the methodol-ogy for moisture content and bar force measurement, load test behavior, analytical evaluation, and condi-tion assessment follows.

The use of the pull-off test to evaluate the interfacial bond strength between substrate concrete and bonded materials can result in failure of the concrete substrate without clear indication of the interfacial bond strength.

Proper knowledge of the interfacial bond strength between a repair material and concrete substrate is critical for the selection of repair materials and for the modeling. Many historic bridges are nonredundant structures, and re- - quire complete evaluation of both structural capacity and the condition of the members for continued service.

The conventional approach of material characterization in older structures has relied on tensile-testing of cou-pons removed from a structure to determine strength values. On-site Evaluation of Concrete Strength. Concrete strength (compressive strength) is by far the most important property of concrete.

It represents the mechanical characteristics of concrete; The 28 days compressive strength of concrete cylinders or cube samples has widely been accepted as the minimum specified concrete strength in most design codes (ACICSA A). hammer test be used as a method of testing variabil-ity of strength properties between concrete samples rather than as a substitute for standard compression testing.

Penetration resistance method Penetration resistance methods are invasive NDT procedures that explore the strength properties of concrete using previously established correlations.

record any detail of the strength evaluation of a concrete arch bridge. The article, though very brief, describes the situation of the Nelson street Bridge and gives some detail on how the bridge was evaluated. The Nelson street Bridge was a ten-span continuous concrete arch bridge, made up of 23 to 77 feet spans constructed circa   Box-beam bridge shear key connection designs are investigated by conducting full-scale structural tests.

The authors’ evaluation included connection details, which are considered current good practice using high-strength nonshrink grout in combination with transverse posttensioning and novel details using ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC).

Load Rating a Prestressed Concrete Double T-Beam Bridge Without Plans by Field Testing. Bridges with no design plans are an issue in New Mexico because of the many that exist throughout the state. Conventional load rating techniques cannot be used because these bridges.

This paper reviews various NDT methods available and presents a case study related to the strength evaluation of existing bridge pier. The assessment of quality and strength is made by correlating the NDT observations with core tests. The assessment involves the core tests, Rebound hammer tests and Ultrasonic pulse velocity tests.

Strengthening of prestressed girder using FRP has rarely been performed because prestressed girder has excellent strength under service load in both tension and compression. In this study, retrofitting of a year-old prestressed bridge of Indian railway at Ratlam has been executed in which multiple vertical cracks visualized in tension zone and surface deterioration were observed.

Due .An experimental study of C20, C25, C30, C40, and C50 big mobility concrete cubes that came from laboratory and construction site was completed. Nondestructive testing (NDT) was carried out using impact rebound hammer (IRH) techniques to establish a correlation between the compressive strengths and the rebound number.

The local curve for measuring strength of the regression method is set up. P r o c e d i a E n g i n e e r i n g 6 6 (2 0 1 3) 3 – 1 1 Available online at The Authors.
