Over the last two decades many researchers have focused on providing new ideas and frameworks that can help improve conventional bridge inspection practices; however, little guidance is provided for implementing these new ideas in practice. This, along with resistance to change and complexity of the...

 

The recent rapid development of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has made collecting images of bridge conditions trivial. Measuring a defect's extent, growth, and location from the collected large image set, however, can be cumbersome. This paper proposes a streamlined bridge inspection system...

 

Bridge expansion joints are a particularly troublesome component of bridges and many departments of transportation (DOTs) are looking for a solution to deteriorating expansion joints on highway bridges. Bridge expansion joints create a break in the structural continuity of a bridge, allowing clogging...

 

The use of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) for the repair of civil infrastructure has been on the rise. Most studies have focused on the effect of CFRP to increase the stiffness and strength of reinforced concrete beams or columns. Limited attention has been given to the effect of CFRP on mitigating...

 

The current legally required two-year inspection interval for most bridges is not an efficient system for conducting inspections, because many bridges do not require inspections this frequently, while others would benefit from more frequent monitoring. The research presented herein is based on the premise...

 

National Bridge Inspection Standards do not require documenting damage location during an inspection but bridge evaluation provisions highlight the importance of location to determining the structural impact of damage. Capturing damage location information using current inspection and documentation methods...

 

This report evaluates two new glass-fiber reinforced polymer concrete reinforcement systems, which have been designed to serve as a non-corrosive alternative to steel reinforcement in reinforced concrete bridge girders. Due to the nature of the reinforcement geometry, these systems react in a way to...

 

Simple-made-continuous (SMC) steel bridges are a relatively new innovation in steel bridge design. The SMC concept is a viable solution for steel bridges to recover market share of the bridges constructed in the United States. The majority of SMC bridges currently in use are constructed with concrete...

 

This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the fatigue performance of RC beams strengthened with different externally bonded CFRP systems. Seven specimens were fabricated; three had no CFRP; the remaining four had one of two CFRP systems. The objective of this study was to determine...

 

The purpose of this research was to generate an understanding of the public perceptions of different revenue generation systems that are already in use or that have the potential to be used in the future, and to educate the public on the different revenue generation systems. In addition, this study tested...
