This study focuses on fabrication tolerance of high strength bolted friction type joint. The investigation of past researches and experimental and FEM analytical results provides statistical characteristics of fabrication variation related to strength of the joint. The characteristic value shows that the variation of the thickness of coating hardly affects the slip strength of the joint. Furthermore, the influence of other variations is evaluated by the FEM analysis. This paper cleared predominant factors of fabrication tolerances affects slip strength of the joint. Source

The objected bridge is Yusuhara Bridge made by glulam timber and constructed in Kochi prefecture on 2007. To investigate design factors, static and dynamic performance, structural rigidity, vibration serviceability, and store of initial data for maintenance, the static and dynamic field tests of the bridge were done using one dump truck in August 2007. The structural performance on static and dynamic were investigated in the terms such as static deflection, response vibration, dynamic characteristics, dynamic increment factor and vibration serviceability. Furthermore, three-dimensional static and dynamic structural analyses of the bridge were conducted using FEM. From the comparison of dynamic characteristics between the subjected bridge and 22 modern timber bridges used glulam timber measured by authors in the past in Japan, this study gives a valuable data to evaluate dynamic performance for modern timber highway bridges.

Experiments under static loads were carried out in order to investigate the possibility of repair/reinforcement by welding. Preventing the influence on the experimental devices due to the welding current by isolating between the jigs and the experimental devices, the stable experiments could be carried out. For the cruciform joints and I-shape joints, semi-auto CO2 gas welding was carried out under compressive static loads on the assumption of the dead load. As the experimental results, any cracks were not found. In the cruciform joints with multi-pass welding, there was a tendency that the longer the weld length became, the larger the magnitude of out-of-plane displacement became. In the actual construction, it was verified that repair welding under static loads could be carried out without welding defects by confirming repair weld length, heat input, inter-pass temperature and so on. © 2014, © 2013 Taylor & Francis.

In welded structures, it is thought that the crack in welds may be related to collapse of structure. So, the investigation on the relation between weld crack and acting loads in repair/reinforcement work by welding is performed. There are three kinds of load conditions in welding of the site: no loads, static loads and fluctuated loads. In the previous paper, welding under static loads was carried out, it was confirmed that weld crack was not generated. In this case, installation of bents and traffic control were required. So, concerning the social and economical situation, welding under fluctuated loads without traffic control was desirable. In this paper, we performed CO2 arc welding under cyclic loads on the assumption that fluctuated loads, examinations for detection of the crack were carried out. The hot cracks were observed at I-type joints. From the results of fractography, projections of cellular dendrite and striations were observed. And it was known that the magnitude of root gap opening displacement (Δδ) and heat input (Q) was induced the hot crack in the weld metal. © 2014, © 2013 Taylor & Francis. Source

From the viewpoint of repair/reinforcement, welding under loading is important because of the economical and social benefit. The soundness of welding structure can be investigated with the detection of defects. In welded structure, it is thought that the crack in welds may be related to collapse of structure. So, the investigation on the relation between the weld crack and acting loads in repair/reinforcement work by welding is very important. In this paper, performing CO 2 arc welding under static and cyclic loads, examinations for detection of the crack were carried out. In case of welding under static loads, the cracks were not observed. But, in case of welding under cyclic loads, the hot cracks were observed at I-type joints. From the results of fractography, pattern of fracture was projections of cellular dendrite and striations. And it could be known that the magnitude of Δ δ influenced the hot crack in the weld metal. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, London. Source
