Abstract

Recently new hybrid bridge systems have been developed for effective and low-cost construction. The hybrid system is attractive to bridge engineers since it can maximize the structural and economical advantages of the steel and concrete components. In this study, the new hybrid bridge systems using perfobond rib shear connector, a flat plate containing a number of holes through which the reinforcements are passed, imparting high shear and fatigue capacities and allowing simple installation. The perfobond rib connectors can be applied to various hybrid to improve the behavior of composite structures or constructability. In this paper, the experimental evaluation of some new hybrid bridge systems using various connector are presented: 1) a spliced PSC-Steel-PSC hybrid I-girder, 2) the partially corrugated web PSC girder with Ytype perfobond rib, and 3) the abutment-pile connection in integral abutment bridge, etc.
