Field assessment of a concrete bridge

Producción científica: Capítulo del libro/informe/acta de congresoCapítulorevisión exhaustiva


This chapter discusses a case study of the field assessment through visual inspection and load testing of a reinforced concrete bridge with cracking caused by alkali-silica reaction, the viaduct Zijlweg. The first main topic of this chapter is the preparation, execution, and postprocessing of the load test, through which it could be demonstrated that the capacity of the viaduct is sufficient and structural strengthening is not required. The second topic is a discussion of the cost-savings (economic, environmental, and social) that are obtained through this procedure, compared to a replacement of the superstructure.
