As with most highway bridges, railway transitions experience differential movements due to differences in track system stiffness, track damping characteristics, foundation type, ballast settlement from fouling and/or degradation, as well as fill and subgrade ...

Bridge approaches provide a smooth and safe transition of vehicles from highway pavements to bridge structures and vice versa. Settlement at the end of the bridge and highway pavements also known as a ‘bump’ in the roadway, causes not only inconvenience to ...

It is well known that the foundations of the Leaning Tower of Pisa were stabilised using the method of underexcavation to reduce the southward inclination of the Tower by about 10 percent in combination with controlling the seasonally fluctuating water ...

Bridge approaches provide smooth and safe transition of vehicles from highway pavements to bridge structures. However, settlement of the bridge approach slab relative to bridge decks usually creates a bump in the roadway. The bump causes inconvenience to passengers ...

Surtees Bridge, which carries the A66(T) over the River Tees near Thornaby-on-Tees in the UK, has been showing signs of distress that predate its opening in 1981. Subsequent investigations have shown that the bridge distress is related to unexpectedly large ...

The purpose of this study is to document the performance and effectiveness of two mitigation techniques, geosynthetic reinforced fill and flowable fill, installed behind four Wisconsin bridges. Two of the bridges (Hemlock and Cranberry bridges) are founded ...

<p>A new simple model for representing buildings is presented to allow a designer to make realistic simplifications to a building system that is consistent with major features of the structure so that the response to ground movements can be adequately represented.</p ...
