Adjustment of small-span masonry arch bridges to present-day demands

Ana Mandić Ivanković, Marin Vasilj, Alex Kindij

Abstract

An overview of deterioration mechanisms and damage to masonry arch bridges, methods for inspection of existing structures, and conservative and sophisticated assessment methods, is presented in this paper. An original preliminary assessment procedure is developed based on the analysis of small-span masonry arch bridges using three conservative assessment methods, and an additional analysis of strengthening and adjustment of these bridges during their service life to modern traffic demands. The procedure contains three basic steps: data collection, arch assessment, and deck slab assessment.

Keywords
assessment, real traffic load, masonry arch bridge, small spans, concrete deck slab
