Abstract

"The objective of this project was to understand why the Southeastern vertical strut of the Paseo Bridge located in Kansas City, MO, fractured after 50 years of service. To achieve this objective, material property testing was performed on samples of strut material made available by the Missouri Department of Transportation. Results from the investigative testing were combined with finite element models of the bridge and strut under service loading conditions to determine why fracture occurred"--Abstract, leaf iii.
