    This paper reviews the simplified procedure proposed by Ghosn and Sivakumar to model the maximum expected traffic load effect on highway bridges and illustrates the methodology using a set of Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) data ...
  • Quality specifications for roadway bridges: standardization at a European level 

    Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Matos, Jose C. (CRC Press, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Across Europe, the need to manage roadway bridges efficiently led to the development of multiple management systems in different countries. Despite presenting similar architectural frameworks, there are relevant differences ...
  • Fiber optics for load testing 

    Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Barrias, Antonio Jose de Sousa; Rodríguez, Gerardo; Villalba Herrero, Sergi (CRC Press, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This chapter presents the application of fiber optic sensor technology in the monitoring of a load test. First, the description of the fiber optic technology is described with main emphasis in the case of distributed optical ...
  • 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 ...
  • A state of the art review of modal-based damage detection in bridges: development, challenges, and solutions 

    Moughty, John James; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This issue is a snapshot of the newest research in SHM for civil structures, and it includes a range of topics such as data processing algorithms to detect damage, modeling, and simulation [1–15]; sensor development and ...
  • 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 ...
