Two-stage crack growth-based fatigue damage evaluation of orthotropic steel decks considering vehicle overload

Abstract
One of the key issues on orthotropic steel deck (OSD) is the reduction of serviceability due to fatigue cracks even though the bridge still keeps a certain level of robustness itself, and accurately simulating crack growth process becomes crucial to evaluate the fatigue performance of OSDs. This paper proposes to measure the fatigue damage based on the two-stage crack growth model derived from experimental tests on the rib-to-deck welded joint of OSD. With the traffic data acquired by the weigh-in-motion system, the consideration of the near-threshold region, i.e., Stage I in the model, turns to be significant as the effect of the vehicle overload is shown more prominently. Thereupon, the way of fatigue damage evaluation is applied to each vehicle to quantify the severity of heavy vehicles with respect to the current status of the crack, and consequently to propose that the permit checking can be implemented in a more direct and dynamic way. The results can be valuable in the fatigue assessment that considers the remedial measures in the life-cycle of OSDs, e.g., the European Convention of Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) procedure, or in developing the guidance for the maintenance of specific bridges with OSDs.
