This study aims to improve the efficiency of driven piles in intermediate geomaterials (IGMs) to increase the reliability of pile foundations for bridge structures. Test pile data collected from the seven state DOTs and total 223 pile load test data are evaluated to provide recommendations for driven...

 

An efficient and timely rescue of injured people by emergency medical services (EMS) is essential to saving as many lives as possible following disasters. Disrupted traffic networks due to the failures of transportation infrastructure (e.g., bridges) following major disasters like earthquakes affect...

 

Three bridge sites in South Dakota with streamflow records ranging from 50 to 67 years were selected to compute the histories of pier or contraction scour using the Scour Rates In COhesive Soils (SRICOS) method. Scour depths were computed using a range of soil erosion functions representative of cohesive...

 

This report presents a comparative experimental study on the axial behavior of concrete subjected to alkali-silica reaction (ASR) with and without confinement by carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets. A total of 120 cylinders are cast using two types of coarse aggregates to represent variable...

 

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...

 

Local governments have an immediate need for low life-cycle cost bridge replacement alternatives. Knowledge of available alternatives and construction planning processes hold potential for South Dakota local governments to replace more structurally deficient local bridges with limited funds. Through...

 

This project discusses the performance of deteriorating double-tee (DT) girder bridges that have been in service for many years. This included field testing of two single-span DT girder bridges in South Dakota for live load distribution factors (LLDFs) and dynamic load allowance (IM). The LLDFs and IM...

 

A study was conducted to develop recommendations for short span concrete structure type selection based on analyses of existing structure costs and performance data from South Dakota roadway systems. Through a combination of data sources, including the PONTIS database, local owner and inspector surveys...

 

The use of deicing salts on highway bridges has decreased the service life of bridge decks due to the accelerated corrosion of the steel reinforcement. The use of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) in bridge decks as a means of corrosion-mitigation has been met with some success; however, GFRP is...

 

Calcium sulfoaluminate (CSA) cement was used to cast a prestressed voided deck slab bridge girder. The rapid-set properties of CSA cement allowed the initial concrete strength to reach the required 4300 psi needed in order to cut the prestressing strands 6.5 hours after casting. Prestress losses were...
