Research interests are developing analytical and design procedures for reinforced concrete utility structures, numerical modelling and analysis prestressed bridge decks using ultra high performance concrete, and finite element analysis of straight and curved box-girder bridge deck structures and determination of their load distributions.
where [[lambda].sub.M] is measured strain; [[lambda].sub.T] is temperature produced strain; [[lambda].sub.EF] are external forces producing strain, for concrete continuous box-girder bridge, which mainly refer to vehicle load producing strain; [[lambda].sub.IF] are internal forces including dead load and prestressed load producing strain; [[lambda].sub.C] is creep and shrinkage strain; [[lambda].sub.N] is measured noise; and [[lambda].sub.O] are accidental actions producing strain.
