Structural Behavior of FRP Composite Bridge Deck Panels | Journal ...The behavior of FRP composite bridge deck panels under service load, design wheel load, and failure load was examined by testing twelve single span and four double span FRP composite bridge deck panels along with four reinforced concrete (RC) control/baseline panels at the University of Kentucky Structural engineering Laboratory. The FRP bridge deck panels were fabricated and supplied by four different manufacturers. Each manufacturer supplied one set of panels consisting ...

Lightweight UHPC-FRP Composite Deck System - ASCE LibraryA new lightweight, low-profile composite deck system is presented that was fabricated using vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding. The deck in this system is composed of ultrahigh-performance concrete (UHPC) for high compressive strength and durability, carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) for high tensile strength, and glass-fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) for shear resistance. The high-performance modular deck panels are beneficial for applications such as movable ...

Fatigue Assessment of Steel-UHPC Lightweight Composite Deck ...A lightweight steelultrahigh performance concrete (UHPC) composite deck (LWCD) was developed for alleviating deterioration issues in orthotropic steel decks (OSDs). In recent years, the LWCD has been increasingly applied to steel bridges in China. This paper focuses on the fatigue assessment of the LWCD on the basis of a pilot project on the 310-m cable-stayed Haihe Bridge. A multiscale

Analysis and design of fiber reinforced plastic composite deck-and ...A comprehensive study on analysis and design of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) composite deck-and-stringer bridges is presented. The FRP decks considered consist of contiguous thin-walled box sections and are fabricated by bonding side-by-side pultruded thin-walled box beams, which are placed transversely over FRP composite stringers. In this study, we review the modeling and experimental verification of FRP structural beams, including micro/macro-mechanics predictions of ...

Composite deck slab bridgesJFE Engineering CorporationRiver bridges are original steel-concrete composite deck slab bridges of JFE engineering that use T-shaped steels with a filling knot-like projection on the outside surface of the flange as a shear connector. Since shear connectors such as studs are no longer required, this structure makes it possible to construct bridges with low girder height that cannot be constructed with other structures. Since this bridge structure was first practically applied, we have constructed more than 420 river ...

Girder bridgesJFE Engineering CorporationGirder bridges are the simplest bridge type in structure and consist of steel beams shaped to an I-section or box section, called a plate girder bridge or a box girder bridge, respectively. Girder bridges are comprised of deck slabs, on which vehicles and people pass, and of main girders supporting the deck slabs. deck slabs include RC deck slabs, steel deck slabs, composite deck slabs, and PC deck slabs. Bridges where the deck slabs and the main girders work together to resist loads ...

I-shaped steel grating deck slabsJFE Engineering CorporationI-shaped steel grating deck slabs. River grating is a type of deck slab whose construction is completed by erecting prefabricated members consisting of I-shaped steel, which function as main reinforcing bars, and galvanized bottom steel plates, which function as forms, and then applying concrete. River grating is very effective for overpasses and bridges that require rapid construction.

Composite Deck Having Transverse Stiffeners Bonded with a ...Abstract. This paper presents the behavior of a new composite deck system for twin-girder bridges subjected to moving-wheel fatigue load. ... Bond failure between the concrete and steel deck is not observed, thereby corroborating the effectiveness of such an adhesive on improving the composite behavior of the system. ...

Basic Performance of the Composite Deck System Composed of ...Fatigue damage in a conventional orthotropic steel bridge deck system poses a formidable challenge to bridge engineers all over the world because of ever-increasing heavy traffic volumes and higher wheel loads over the past decade. An effective solution may be to enhance the stiffness of the bridge deck to reduce the fatigue stress amplitude of its components. This paper proposes an innovative composite bridge deck system that consists of an orthotropic steel deck stiffened with a ...

Design and construction of steel/concrete composite deck slab bridgesRiver Bridges (KCSB) are steel/concrete composite deck slab bridges developed by JFE engineering. Combining the advantages of steel and concrete, they can be constructed to a low structural height that could never be realized with steel bridges and PC bridges. They are simple in structure, consisting mainly of shape steel, and outperform other types of bridges in terms of onsite workability. For the quarter century since 1981, when the first River Bridge (KCSB) was constructed, our ...
