Paper Title:
Experimental Analysis and Performance Evaluation of Fu Feng Highway Prestressed Concrete Bridge after Strengthening in China
  Abstract

Fu Feng highway prestressed concrete bridge is located in Changchun City which is the capital and largest city of Jilin province and it located in the northeast of China. The strengthening of the bridge structural members can be attempted by replacing poor quality or defective materials by better quality materials, attaching additional load-bearing materials, and re-distribution of the loading actions through imposed deformation on the structure system. The objectives of this study are to explain the strengthening process of damaged structural members of Fu Feng bridge, and to evaluate the performance of the bridge structure by adopting static load test. The strengthening process of damaged structural members includes three stages. These stages include the strengthening of box girders floor by casting of 10cm of reinforced concrete in the floor of box girder within the location of positive bending moment in the mid-span and edge span, the strengthening of box girders web by pasting steel plates in the inside of the right and left of box girders, and the strengthening of the transverse beam of piers No. 18 and No. 19 by using carbon fiber sheet. The results of static load test show that the values of testing coefficient ( ) of stress range from 0.83 to 0.92 are less than allowable value 1.05. Therefore, these values satisfy the allowable value of standard, indicating that the structural member has a certain strength reserve and the working state of the bridge structure in good state. the ratio between the measured and theoretical deflection is 1.41 and 1.68 for condition 3 more than allowable value 0.8, indicating that the state of stiffness is not good and there are still a serious shortage in stiffness of structure. Therefore, this study recommended that the bridge structural members need to re-strengthen by using other effective technical and materials to increase the stiffness of structural members of the bridge.
