  1. 1. Capacity assessment of arch bridges with backfill : Case of the old Årsta railway bridge

    Author : Andreas Andersson; Håkan Sundquist; Raid Karoumi; Clive Melbourne; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Concrete arch bridge; soil backfill; spandrel walls; field measurements; finite element method; load distribution; ultimate limit state.; Betongbågbro; jordfyllning; sidomur; fältmätningar; finita element metoder; lastspridning; brottgränstillstånd.; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis comprises the assessment of existing arch bridges with overlying backfill. The main objective is to estimate the load carrying capacity in ultimate limit state analysis. A case study of the old Årsta railway bridge is presented, serving as both the initiation and a direct application of the present research. READ MORE

  3. 3. Concrete flat slabs and footings : Design method for punching and detailing for ductility

    Author : Carl Erik Broms; Håkan Sundquist; Mikael Hallgren; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction engineering; bent-down bars; building codes; cyclic loading; deflection; ductility; earthquake; Byggnadsteknik; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Simple but still realistic physical models suitable for structural design of flat concrete plates and column footings with respect to punching are presented. Punching of a flat plate is assumed to occur when the concrete compression strain at the column edge due to the bending moment in the slab reaches a critical value that is considerably lower than the generally accepted ultimate compression strain 0.

  4. 4. Life cycle assessment of bridges, model development and case studies

    Author : Guangli Du; Raid Karoumi; Håkan Sundquist; Gervásio Helena dos Santos; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sustainable construction; Life cycle assessment; LCA; Global warming; Bridge LCA; CO2 emissions; Cumulative energy demand; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : In recent decades, the environmental issues from the construction sector have attracted increasing attention from both the public and authorities. Notably, the bridge construction is responsible for considerable amount of energy and raw material consumptions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Sustainable Construction: Life Cycle Assessment of Railway Bridges

    Author : Guangli Du; Raid Karoumi; Håkan Sundquist; Helge Brattebo; KTH; []
    Keywords : Life cycle assessment; LCA; Environment; Railway Bridge; Sustainability; Järnvägsgruppen - Infrastruktur; Järnvägsgruppen - Infrastruktur;

    Abstract : Since last few decades, the increased pressure from the environmental issues of natural resource depletion, global warming and air pollution have posed a great challenge worldwide. Among all the industrial fields, bridge infrastructures and their belonged construction sector contribute to a wide range of energy and raw materials consumptions, which is responsible for the most significant pollutions.
