The Bridge Engineering Association will hold the 8th edition of the New York City Bridge Conference on August 24-25, 2015 in Manhattan, NYC. During this event, Canam-Bridges engineering intern and master’s degree candidate Maxime Ampleman will deliver a presentation entitled Slip and Creep Performance for Metallized Connection Faying Surfaces used in Steel Bridge Construction.
The presentation will review the results of a joint research project conducted by Université Laval and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on the slip and creep performance of metallized faying surfaces used with slip-critical bolted connections. The findings obtained in the scope of static short-term slippage testing and long-term creep tests performed at the labs of these partnering institutions may influence upcoming revisions of North American highway bridge design codes.
The Bridge Engineering Association is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote the state-of-the-art in bridge engineering technology through the publications of the latest in bridge engineering technology and the organization of conferences, seminars and forums on various themes of interest to the bridge engineering community.
