  1. 1. Patch loading resistance of plated girders : ultimate and serviceability limit state

    Author : Jonas Gozzi; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : Patch loading or partial edge loading of steel girder webs is a load case where a concentrated force is introduced perpendicular to the flange of a girder. This usually induces a local failure of the girder web in the vicinity of the loaded flange. READ MORE

  2. 2. Serviceability Limit State for Steel Girders during Bridge Launching - A Patch Loading Problem

    Author : Per Granath; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : steel; patch loading; plate girders; bridge launching; post-buckling; behaviour; finite element analysis; serviceability limit state;

    Abstract : Incremental launching is a construction method in which bridge girders are first assembled in the vicinity of the future permanent position of the bridge. When the elements have been welded together the girders are launched to their permanent position. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigations on the Serviceability Limit State of Dowel-Type Timber Connections

    Author : Michael Dorn; de Borst Karin; Vienna University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; timber engineering; dowel-type connection; experiments; simualations; Servieability Limit State; contact behavior; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Abstract : Dowel-type steel-to-timber connections are commonly used to transfer a large range of loads. Although they are simple to produce and assemble, the load-carrying behavior and the local stress and strain distribution within the connection area are highly complex. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aspects of probabalistic serviceability limit state design of dry deep mixing

    Author : Niclas Bergman; Stefan Larsson; Tim Länsivaara; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : An expanding population and increased need for infrastructure increasingly necessitate construction on surfaces with poor soil conditions. To facilitate the construction of buildings, roads and railroads in areas with poor soil conditions, these areas are often improved by means of foundation engineering. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
