Hi all,

I am doing a Project as part of my MEng on the effects of SCC and Cyclical Fatigue on structural failure (specifically bridge failure) and wondered if anyone can recommend any good sources on either (or both) subject?

Thanks in advance for any input offered.

There have been several analyses of the Tay Bridge disaster, likewise the Tacoma Bridge one. There have also been some reports on the footbridge acros the Thames in London which Galloped [in the past few years].

That should be a start


Thank you for your assistance. It is the Kinzua Viaduct collapse (which took place during restorations) which I am researching. Central to my investigation is looking at the rates of corrosion and cyclical fatigue, then deciding if an earlier restoration could have prevented disaster.

I will look into the Tacoma incident, as I am not overly familiar with it.

You can also refer certain areas in structural design eg. distribution of load, deflection etc. to find out development of localized stress. Erosion starts from such areas.
