Preliminary design and analysis of a pedestrian FRP bridge deck
2002 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
The interest for Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) as an alternative building material is constantly increasing within the building construction sector worldwide. In order to allow for a commercial breakthrough of FRP based building structures, it is necessary to develop design methods that can readily be adopted by bridge engineers. A survey of existing FRP bridges around the world is carried out and is followed by the presentation of some cases studies. The conceptual design of the whole bridge system and the development of a concept for the deck cross-section are described.
