During a proof load test, we study the formation and growth of cracks as well as the deflections under the applied loads. Crack formation is followed with acoustic emissions measurements. Since these measurements need three cycles of loading to the same load level, they control the load process in the field.

The Ruytenschildt Bridge was a special case. This bridge was schedule for demolition, so instead of carrying out a proof loading test, we were able to load the bridge until failure. It’s a five-span reinforced concrete slab bridge, and we could test to failure in two spans.

To split up the bridge in two parts, a saw cut was made, splitting the bridge up into two independent parts. We tested the 7,365m wide part that was going to be demolished first.

Another effect that we know from testing slabs in shear in the lab is that the Eurocode shear prediction on average is too conservative. The average tested to predicted ratio for slabs under concentrated loads close to supports failing in shear is 2,023. However, this value is again determined for straight slabs. For skewed slabs, we know that the stress concentrations are larger at the obtuse corner. Perhaps this means that the increase for skewed slabs is not as large as for straight slabs and that in skewed slabs less tranverse redistribution can take place.

What you see in this table are the maximum values of the load on the loading tandem to get a shear failure. Given the uncertainties about the calculation for skewed slabs, we can give a range of values in between which we expect the shear failure to lie.

Since the material properties that were determined before the test had resulted in lower values, the maximum amount of load that was available for the test was 300 ton. We reached a maximum load of 3049 kN, and we could observe flexural distress, but failure was not achieved.

For the second test, we ordered 100 tons more of counterweights.

In span 2, where we achieved failure, we saw that flexure was the governing failure mode.

An interesting observation here as well is that we saw that for shear, we need further research on skewed slabs to identify the effective width for shear on skewed slabs, and that we need experiments to identify the transverse load redistribution capacity of skewed slabs.

We learned about the two tests on the Ruytenschildt Bridge, and the measurements we used.

We focused on the shear and moment capacity of the bridge. For the moment capacity, we saw the need to have extensive material research prior to the test, since the results of a limited number of concrete cores gave a too low value of the compressive strenght. For the shear capacity, we saw the difficulty in estimating the shear capacity of skewed slabs.

Finally, we saw that in span 1, there was flexural distress but we did not reach a failure, and that in span 2, we achieved a flexural failure of the slab, combined with settlement of the substructure.
