Title: Are Composite Bridge Slabs Too Conservatively Designed? - Fatigue Studies
Author(s): B. dev. Batchelor and B.E. Hewitt
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 331-346
Keywords: beams (supports); bridges (structures); composite constuction (concrete and steel); concrete construction; concrete slabs; concretes; deflection; fatigue (materials); highway bridges; loads (forces); reinforcing steels; static loads; strength
Abstract:The effects of repeated loads on slabs of steel/concrete composite bridges are reported. The study was based on tests of a number of 1/8 scale direct models of a typical highway bridge and was aimed at determining endurance limits of slabs under repeated concentrated loads.
