Calibration of Fatigue Design Factors and Fatigue Life Reliability of Steel Highway Bridges Using WIM DatabasesDownload
Fatigue life assessment of steel highway bridges is crucial to maintain their safety. Researches are required to quantify uncertainties in loading, resistance, fatigue life prediction and improvement techniques. This study calibrates some fatigue code parameters and models fatigue loading...
Structures at relatively small scales (e.g. nano/micro scale) behave differently in comparison to those examined at the macro scale. This is mainly because a high surface area to volume ratio is present at this scale making physical factors such as surface stress/energy and electromagnetic forces...
