OCTOBER EVENT – 10/19/2017

 

ASHE Members and Friends,

We are pleased to announce a presentation for Liberty Bridge Event:  Response Evaluation for Jacking Operations and Ratings.  On September 2nd, 2016, a fire occurred on the Liberty Bridge in Pittsburgh, PA, that resulted in a severely damaged bottom compression chord member.   As part of the emergency response, a global 3D analysis of the bridge was performed to evaluate the capacity of the members.  The analysis results were combined with calculated capacities and field measurements of strain and displacement to produce real time ratings of the main trusses before jacking.  Based on the results, the bridge was reopened to traffic following jacking operations.  Additional rating calculations were performed after removal of the jacking frame and the final repairs of the bottom lateral bracing system.

 

Our presenters are Andrew Adams, PE and Nohemy Galindez, PhD, PE of Modjeski and Masters. Mr. Adams has worked on a variety of rehabilitation, design and emergency response projects. Dr. Galindez has been focused in the analysis and design of bridge structures, including stability analysis of arch bridges and redundancy analysis of fracture critical members.
