  • Diagnostic load testing of bridges: background and examples of application 

    Olaszek, Piotr; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (CRC Press, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This chapter presents principles and justification of diagnostic load tests of bridges as normally performed. Normally, diagnostic tests serve to verify and adjust the predictions of an analytical model. However, as presented ...
  • Diagnostic load testing of concrete bridges, principles and example 

    Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Olaszek, Piotr; Ciesla, Juliusz; Germaniuk, Krzyszto (American Concrete Insitute, 2018)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Load testing of concrete bridges is a practice with a long history. Historically, and particularly before the unification of design and construction practices through codes, load testing was performed to show the travelling ...
  • On-site assessment of bridges supported by acoustic emission 

    Olaszek, Piotr; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Swit, Grzegorz (2016-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Load testing has considerable possibilities in bridges as regards their safety assessment. This paper presents a comparison study on the diagnostic and the proof load test supported by acoustic emission. Diagnostic load ...
  • Practical considerations regarding results from static and dynamic load testing of bridges 

    Olaszek, Piotr; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (2019-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Bridge tests are a helpful tool for bridge assessment and evaluation. Both in the case of a static and dynamic load testing, each element of the test: the load selection and application, the creation of a numerical model ...
  • Proof load testing supported by acoustic emission: an example of application 

    Olaszek, Piotr; Swit, Gor; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (CRC Press, 2010)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The load testing method has considerable possibilities in bridges with the objective of their safety assessment. One type of load tests is proof load. Proof load testing is a full-scale and non-destructive examination of ...
  • Some relevant experiences from proof load testing of concrete bridges 

    Olaszek, Piotr; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Swit, Grzegorz (2016)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper presents the results and experiences derived from a series of proof load test on concrete bridge structures. There are three main parts of the paper. The first part is a theoretical part related to the assessment ...
