Project Type MQP Submission date 2009-03-09 Authors Jennifer Ann Himottu, CE Alyson J Stuer, CE URN E-project-030909-150947 Title Analysis of Bridge Connections Advisor Albano, Leonard D., CE Availability unrestricted
This project examined bridge design in terms of strength, cost and sustainability for the reconstruction of a bridge in Worcester, MA. Both a prestressed concrete and a steel girder bridge were designed and four different types of joints were analyzed through laboratory tensile testing. Additionally, one joint was compared through a computer software model analysis. The report culminates with conclusions and recommendations, determined by research and testing, for an appropriate solution for bridge redesign.
