BRIDGING WITH STEEL

THE RESULTS OF NEW MATERIAL DEVELOPMENTS ARE APPLIED TO BRIDGE DESIGN. THREE AREAS ARE DISCUSSED: (1) CORROSION PROTECTION, (2) FATIGUE BEHAVIOR, AND (3) NOTCH TOUGHNESS AND BRITTLE FRACTURE. THE PRINCIPLES OUTLINED ARE INCORPORATED IN A UNIQUE SERIES OF CHARTS. THESE CHARTS CATEGORIZE BRIDGES. SPECIFIC STEEL GRADES ARE THEN SUGGESTED FOR EACH TYPE OF BRIDGE. IT IS HOPED THAT THESE CHARTS WILL GREATLY ASSIST BRIDGE DESIGNERS IN THE SELECTION OF A BRIDGE STEEL. /CGRA/
