Quick Scan Method - Presentation at the International Bridge Conference
I recently presented in a technical session of the International Bridge Conference in Pittsburgh - a great venue for practitioners and researchers that work on practical applications for the bridge engineering field.
The proceedings will be published over the summer, and the abstract of my paper is the following:
To assess a large number of reinforced concrete slab bridges for shear, recommendations based on experimental research are implemented in a spreadsheet-based “Quick Scan” method. In particular, transverse load redistribution is studied. The resulting method is used to study cases of existing slab bridges in The Netherlands, indicating the benefits of the proposed method as compared to previous “Quick Scan” approaches.
