    Arden Street Bridge Load Testing Conference – 9th Australian Small Bridges Conference 2019
    Load Testing of a 1920’s Cast-in-Place Reinforced Concrete Tee Beam Bridge

    ABSTRACT: The Arden Street Bridge over the Moonee Ponds Creek is a seven-span cast-in-place reinforced concrete tee beam bridge constructed in 1923. Originally designed for a 16-ton roller, the bridge was strengthened in 2004 to accommodate semi-trailers and B-doubles operating at Higher Mass Limits. pitt&sherry was initially engaged to undertake desktop load rating of the bridge to see if it could be used during the transport of various Heavy Load Platform configurations, including platforms carrying 180t and 130t transformers, as part of the planned West Melbourne Terminal Station upgrade.Following the desktop exercise physical load testing of the bridge was carried out. The test regime included performance load testing using two semi-trailers loaded up to 54.5t each (Stage 1) followed by proof load testing of a representative tee beam using a hydraulic jack and loading frame (Stage 2).

  • The Effect on Bridge Barriers

    Transport Infrastructure

    The revision to AS5100 in 2017 resulted in significant changes to the design loading and impact heights for all bridge barrier performance levels. These changes have increased the requirements for on and off structure barriers and for pier protection which are then reflected into increased cost of bridge construction.
    This paper will explore the impact of the changes to bridge barrier design.

    Load assessment of bridges for Road Managers

    Most road network asset owners know what structures they own, where they are located and what condition they are in. Less understood, is the capacity of those structures to cope with modern vehicles and permit vehicles.

    The demand is driven by increasing loads and ageing infrastructure that is deteriorating, causing asset owners to worry about the ongoing safety of their structures. Fortunately, there is a range of methods of assessing structures that can be used to assist the asset owners in understanding the risks. Along with the range of methods, however, comes cost, so it is important to gain an understanding of the options available and their complexity and benefits to ensure that value for money is obtained without inadvertently compromising safety.

    This paper reviews the methods available, their complexity and relative cost to help bridge asset managers understand the options available to them.
