Putting Research into Practice: Implementing a Fatigue Detail Classification Scheme for MnDOT's Steel Bridges

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  06/07/2007


This project implements research that classifies steel bridges based on the frequency and severity of fracture and fatigue-sensitive details that are present in each bridge. The gross ranking of bridges with high, medium or low need for preventive maintenance or special inspection will be stored in Pontis, MnDOT's bridge management database, for use by bridge inspectors and those responsible for managing Minnesota's bridges.
