Integrated bridge abutments

Specific localized constraints

 
 

A detailed expert report was conducted by Professor Aurelio Muttoni on fissuring problems in abutment areas.

Without going into detail, this study shows that cracking problems can occur following different behaviour scenarios of the transition slab.

Interested by this problem, we noticed that the localized cracking around these abutments was not rectilinear.

TEXUM expertise

In order to combat multi-axis cracking, the use of a quadriaxial carbon fibre geogrid is a viable solution.

However, it is strongly recommended to insert it within a SAMI membrane in order to ensure the cohesion of the layers between them.
