Abstract

By using a three dimensional FEM model of Tsing-Ma Bridge, the dynamic response to traffic loading is analyzed and the global response of bridge is obtained. The comparison is made between the calculation results and the measured values. The local FEM model is developed to analyse the critical fatigue damage region and the stress concentration factor for critical region is obtained to get the hot spot stress around the weld toe. Based on the structural online health and safety online monitoring system, the representative block of cycles repeated everyday can be obtained. With the S-N curve based on hot spot stress approach, the fatigue life evaluation is made for the Tsing Ma Bridge,which gives informtion for the bridge health monitoring system

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
