  1. 1. Fatigue Analysis of a Lively Footbridge

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Kristi Bila; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The commitment of building aesthetic bridges made of stiff materials results in theconstruction of slender structures highly susceptible to dynamic loading. In the caseof footbridges located over a highly trafficked highway, such dynamic loads maybe the aerodynamic pressure induced by the heavy trucks passing underneath thestructure and the pedestrian loading involving a pedestrian running and jumping.

  2. 2. Virtual Sensing for Fatigue Assessment of the Rautasjokk Bridge

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Sara Lundman; Patrick Parnéus; [2018]
    Keywords : Fatigue Assessment; Virtual Sensing; Steel Bridges; Eurocode; Field Monitoring; Finite Element Model;

    Abstract : This thesis treats virtual sensing for fatigue assessment of steel bridges. The purpose is to develop avirtual sensing method to use in the fatigue assessment process. The aim for the virtual sensing method is to only depend on strain measurements located on the bridge structure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Achieving Composite Action in Existing Bridges : With post-installed shear connectors

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : David Olsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Shear connector; Composite action; post-installed; strengthening; Pitsund Bridge; coiled spring pins; Skjuvförbindare; Samverkansbroar; förstärkningsarbete; Pitsundsbron; spiralbult;

    Abstract : The increased amount of traffic combined with higher traffic loads leads to many existing bridges needing strengthening in the future to ensure their expected lifespan. This means the bridge owners will be focusing more on strengthening projects and smart solutions will be crucial for preserving a healthy bridge stock. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modal analysis of pedestrian-induced torsional vibrations based on validated FE models

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Simon Chamoun; Marwan Trabulsi; [2017]
    Keywords : Modal analysis; validated FE models; pedestrian-induced vibrations;

    Abstract : Finite element (FE) models serve as the base of many different types of analysis as e.g. dynamic analysis. Hence, obtaining FE models that represent the actual behaviour of real structures with great accuracy is of great importance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fatigue Testing of Implant Supported Bridge. A Study of All-on-two Concept

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för odontologi; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för odontologi

    Author : Artem Lytvyn; Rodi Sliwa; [2017]
    Keywords : tandimplantat; all-on-two;

    Abstract : The conventional implant therapy of patients with edentulous mandibles involves installation of four implants. The treatment is well-studied with high success rate. By reducing number of implants, biological and cost benefits could be made. READ MORE
