Assessment of prestressed concrete bridges loaded in combined shear, torsion and bending :uncertaintiers in deterministic and statistic methods

by Puurula, Arto

Abstract (Summary)
The aim of the thesis is to investigate the load-carrying capacity of bridges according to different models for shear in combination with bending, torsion and prestressing. The following models are studied: Model with traditional summation of the contributions from concrete and steel accroding to the Swedish Code BBK 94 Strut model according to the European code EC2 Modified Compression Field Theory from Canada The models are applied to the Källösund Bridge on the road to the island Tjörn on the West coast of Sweden. Use of carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) to strengthen bridges is discussed
