Bridge Design and Evaluation: LRFD and LRFR by Gongkang Fu

By Gongkang Fu

A succinct, real-world method of entire bridge process layout and evaluation

Load and Resistance issue layout (LRFD) and cargo and Resistance issue ranking (LRFR) are layout and overview equipment that experience changed or provided choices to different conventional equipment because the new criteria for designing and load-rating U.S. street bridges. Bridge layout and Evaluation covers whole bridge structures (substructure and superstructure) in a single succinct, doable package deal. It offers real-world bridge examples demonstrating either their layout and review utilizing LRFD and LRFR. Designed for a three- to 4-credit undergraduate or graduate-level direction, it provides the basics of the subject with out increasing needlessly into complex or really good subject matters.

Important good points contain:

  • Exclusive specialize in LRFD and LRFR
  • Hundreds of pictures and figures of genuine bridges to attach the theoretical with the practical
  • Design and review examples from actual bridges together with real bridge plans and drawings and layout methodologies
  • Numerous workout problems
  • Specific layout for a three- to 4-credit direction on the undergraduate or graduate level
  • The basically bridge engineering textbook to hide the $64000 issues of bridge review and rating

Bridge layout and Evaluation is the main up to date and inclusive advent to be had for college kids in civil engineering focusing on structural and transportation engineering.Content:
Chapter 1 advent (pages 1–14):
Chapter 2 requisites for Bridge layout and assessment (pages 15–46):
Chapter three so much, Load results, and cargo mixtures (pages 47–99):
Chapter four Superstructure layout (pages 101–301):
Chapter five Bearing layout (pages 303–333):
Chapter 6 Substructure layout (pages 335–393):
Chapter 7 street Bridge assessment (pages 395–420):

The labor cost is much more expensive than the material cost, causing the total cost increase due to material cost to be very limited. On the other hand, increasing the load-carrying capacity of an existing bridge structure can become very expensive. For example, permanently increasing the load-carrying capacity of a concrete beam superstructure is very difficult if not impossible because there have not been acceptable technologies to accomplish that. As a result, such a requirement can only be satisfied by replacing the structure, which can be very costly.

The fitting evaluation is typically performed for several candidate models to finally select a best fitt PDF for the following analysis that uses the PDF. Note also that sometimes the PDF or distribution of the random variable is not readily available due to a number of reasons. One of them is that a statistically significant number of observations of the random variable are required but not readily available or too costly to acquire. When such a situation occurs, approximation is sometimes advisable by selecting the distribution according to experience and/or s limited data.

Their dead-load effects were modeled based on statistical data from the literature. The live load was described using truck weight data from weigh stations. The analysis covered single-lane, two-lane, and multilane bridges of simple and continuous beams. The span length was from 10 to 200 ft. The analysis covered the component’s bending and shear limit states, but not deflection, cracking, and so on. 2. Establishment of Reliability Model for Selected Bridge Types and Components The model used in this calibration is given in Eq.
