Chain-Styled Mechanism and Chain-Cutting Disaster Mitigation for Masonry Arch Bridge
Based on the chain-styled theory, disease mechanism of masonry arch bridge is analyzed in the paper, which indicates that not only the causes of diseases but also results show the complex chain-styled relationship, stages of diseases are divided according to the law of disaster chain, and the measures of chain-cutting, prevention and reinforcement are put forward. Based on the Dongqing Bridge, disease mechanism is analyzed and reinforcement method is proposed according to the idea of chain -cutting disaster mitigation.
