1. Ranade, Ashutosh M. Load Rating for the Critical Components of Ironton-Russell Bridge.

Degree: MS, Engineering and Applied Science: Civil Engineering, 2017, University of Cincinnati

The behavior of a structure can be documented by implementation of a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system to collect long-term measurement data. SHM makes it possible to detect changes of structural responses and, in some cases, correlate the changes of structural responses with changes in material and geometric properties. The ability of the SHM system to predict the responses is directly correlated to the reliability and effectiveness of the selected network of sensors. Therefore, an effective SHM system is developed based upon the selection of the critical points of a structure that have to be inspected and monitored. This thesis concentrates on the methodology for determining and validating the critical points of the Ironton-Russell Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge in Ironton, OH and Russell, KY. A set of finite element models (i.e., both SAP2000 and MIDAS) were employed to determine load responses used in the design and construction of the bridge. Member capacities were calculated using RESPONSE 2000. Capacity and load responses were used to calculate the rating factors for towers, edge girders, and piers. Based on this information, the critical locations in the bridge were determined and used as the basis for SHM sensor locations, which had been selected for installation during construction of the bridge. The differences in the design drawings and the as-built structure were studied especially for their effects on the rating factors and, thus, the locations of the sensors. Future scope of the project is to conduct truck load tests at predetermined locations based on the influence line diagrams, and to compare the measured data to the simulation data.
