Author(s): Paul W. Abeles, Furman W. Barton, and Earl I. Brown, II
Publication: Symposium Paper
Appears on pages(s): 579-600
Keywords: beams (structural), bond (concrete to reinforcement); bridges (structures); cracking (fracturing); crack propagation; crack width and spacing; cyclic loads; deflection; fatigue (materials); fatigue limit; fatigue tests; lightweight aggregate concretes
Basic considerations relating to design principles for prestressed concrete bridge members subjected to fatigue loading are presented, with special reference to the existing literature on the subject.
