Several approaches are presented that allow for a direct path of image-to-analysis for the mechanics of structures using a combination of structure-from-motion (SFM) and the finite element method. Through these methods, conventional computational methods can be applied to models created from digital...

 

The ultimate objective of this project was to determine the structural performance of the dynamic message sign (DMS) bonded with chemical adhesive in terms of ultimate strength and fatigue strength. To achieve this objective, this project first investigated the effects of various parameters (i.e., conditioning...

 

For this research, sensors were used to investigate the differences in prestress losses and temperature gradients in a concrete deck bulb tee girder bridge. The Millville Bridge was built as an access point to the Ridgeline High School in Millville, Utah. The bridge was built in 2016 and presently supports...

 

The ultimate objective of this project was to develop widely accepted recommendations on self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixture design for its use in WisDOT bridge projects. This project investigated the effects of material constituents on the material properties of trial SCC mixtures made from precasters...

 

The objective of this project is to find effective configurations for using buckling restrained braces (BRBs) in both skewed and curved bridges for reducing the effects of strong earthquakes. Verification is performed by numerical simulation using analytical models of existing bridges when BRBs are implemented...

 

As part of a study to develop design guidelines for integral abutment bridges, a study was undertaken in which the bridge movement of the 400 South Street Bridge was surveyed for one year to quantify changes in bridge movement due to temperature variations. These quantitative bridge movements were compared...

 

Depending on the location, highway bridges can often support considerable amounts of traffic. Due to the limitations on current earthquake forecasting techniques, a normal amount of traffic will also typically remain on a bridge when an earthquake occurs. In addition to traffic, scour effects are also...

 

There are 16 small to medium simple span bridges in Larimer County that are currently load rated solely based on visual inspections. Most of these bridges are prestressed concrete bridges. The objective of this project is to load rate these bridges using structural analysis with very little to no information...

 

Recent studies have shown that the use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) results in improved finished quality, increased production efficiency, and reduced labor cost. Because of the favorable properties that SCC exhibits, the Federal Highway Administration and the precast concrete industry have been...

 
Evaluation of Pavement Shoulders (May 1999, MPC-99-101)

In this study the researchers examined the effect of pavement shoulders on the safety and structural strength of highways in Wyoming. The costs of adding shoulders to various types of highways also was examined. The study consisted of selecting representative highway sections, collecting accident data...
