TRB’s Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2251 consists of 16 papers that explore the relationships of barge bow force–deformation for bridge design, innovative vibration absorber, vibration versus deflection control for bridges with high-performance steel girders, two new retrofit combination steel and concrete bridge rail designs, and skew in bridges with steel girders.
This issue of the TRR also examines confinement reinforcement in pretensioned concrete beams, ultra-high-performance concrete under variable curing conditions, ultra-high-performance concrete beams, waffle bridge deck panels and connections of precast ultra-high-performance concrete, and fatigue response in bridge deck connection composed of field-cast ultra-high-performance concrete.
In addition, this TRR discusses nondestructive detection of delamination in concrete slabs, evaluation of load rating and system reliability of movable bridge, rebar detection with cover meter and ultrasonic pulse echo combined with automated scanning system, seismic retrofitting of cruciform-shaped columns, nonlinear, effective-stress ground motion response analyses, and controlled low-strength material used around buried pipelines.
