Support area of composite bridges

The function of the support area of composite structures was verified on a segment of the structure near an intermediate support. This segment was loaded by a service load from which cracks originated in the composite slab. Subsequently the loaded structure was monitored for one year. After which the ultimate capacity of the support area was determined.

In collaboration with the Department of Concrete and Masonry Structures, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Brno University of Technology.
