It took only 20 days to install the 8 expansion joints for the Jianghai Bridge, a cable stayed bridge of 700 m main span, that is part of the 35 km long Hong Kong‐Zhuhai‐Macao Bridge (HZMB), constructed over the Pearl River Delta. The short period of time for the installation is due to expansion...
Experience with the operation and maintenance of cable‐borne bridges of various ages over the last 20 years shows that water ingress into steel cable systems often occurs and causes a high risk of serious corrosion that may lead to traffic restrictions, extraordinary inspection and maintenance...
A great number of fatigue cracks have been found in the welded joints at the top end of web gap plates in the transverse beam connection, at the top end of vertical stiffeners in the sway bracing connection, and at the web penetrations with the transverse beam bottom flange.
The length‐dependent behaviour domains of thin elastic cylindrical shells under uniform bending have recently received significant research attention. Ovalization is known to affect very long cylinders that undergo significant cross‐sectional flattening before failing by local buckling. This...
Steel poles made from polygonal sections are an economic alternative to circular hollow sections for use as lighting towers or transmission line pylons. For transmission lines especially, the intention behind the design of the poles is to make them more compact in order to avoid land usage and...
Post‐buckling Strength of Plate Girders subjected to Shear
A consistent and simplified direct strength method (DSM) is proposed for the design of cold‐formed (or thin‐walled) sections under localized loading, which is called web crippling. The development of this method proposes generalized equations for the design of thin‐walled sections under the four...
