SPR-4119: Assessment of Bridges Subjected to Vehicular Collision

The aim of this project is to understand the impact of vehicular collision on the behavior and load carrying capacity of slab-on-steel-girder bridges. Research will include (1) performing non-destructive field testing using Digital Image Correlation, (2) developing validated numerical models, and (3) performing parametric investigations to extend results to other loadings and bridge geometries. Research will culminate in analysis recommendations and assessment guidelines for bridge inspectors to evaluate damaged bridges for repair.
