  1. 1. Refining the fatigue assessment procedure of existing steel bridges

    Författare :John Leander; Raid Karoumi; Bert Norlin; John D. Sørensen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Fatigue; Steel bridges; Assessment; Reliability; Monitoring; Utmattning; stålbroar; bärighetsberäkning; tillförlitlighet; mätningar; Söderström; getingmidjan;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis treats the fatigue assessment process of steel bridges. The purpose is to identify areas with potential of enhancement with an overall aim of attaining a longer service life. The aging bridge stock in Sweden and in many other developed countries is an impending economical burden. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Reliability-based fatigue assessment of existing steel bridges

    Författare :Ruoqi Wang; John Leander; Raid Karoumi; John Dalsgaard Sørensen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Fatigue; steel bridges; reliability analysis; spatial correlation; risk analysis; Monte Carlo simulation; Utmattning; stålbroar; tillförlitlighet; rumslig korrelation; riskanalys; Monte Carlo-simulering; Bro- och stålbyggnad; Structural Engineering and Bridges;

    Sammanfattning : Fatigue is among the most critical forms of deterioration damage that occurs tosteel bridges. It causes a decline of the safety level of bridges over time. Therefore,the performance of steel bridges, which may be seriously affected by fatigue, shouldbe assessed and predicted. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Improving a bridge fatigue life prediction by monitoring

    Författare :John Leander; Raid Karoumi; Mohammad Al-Emrani; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : For steel railway bridges, fatigue is the main reason for a limited service life. An initial prediction of the fatigue life is usually performed using loads and conservative assumptions stated in the governing standards. The result is used for decisions of further actions.

  4. 4. Structural Health Monitoring of Bridges : Model-free damage detection method using Machine Learning

    Författare :Cláudia Neves; Raid Karoumi; John Leander; Ignacio Gonzalez; Eleni Chatzi; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Health Monitoring; Machine Learning; Damage detection; Model-free based method; Artificial Neural Networks; Gaussian Process; Cost optimization; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : This is probably the most appropriate time for the development of robust and reliable structural damage detection systems as aging civil engineering structures, such as bridges, are being used past their life expectancy and beyond their original design loads. Often, when a significant damage to the structure is discovered, the deterioration has already progressed far and required repair is substantial. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fatigue of steel bridges : New structural details and the implementation of high strength steel

    Författare :Oskar Skoglund; John Leander; Raid Karoumi; Alain Nussbaumer; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; high strength steel; fatigue; steel bridges; steel and concrete composite bridges; new structural details; linear elastic fracture mechanics; effective notch stress method; nominal stress method; Structural Engineering and Bridges; Bro- och stålbyggnad;

    Sammanfattning : The use of high strength steel has the potential to reduce the amount of steel used in bridge structures and thereby facilitate a more sustainable construction. The amount of steel and what steel grade that can be used in bridge structures and other cyclic loaded structures are often limited by a material degradation process called fatigue. LÄS MER
