The gusset plate project provided essential knowledge that led to the rapid development of national safety standards that will help prevent other potential gusset plate bridge design failures.
Failure modes for gusset plate connections are local buckling of gusset plate and purlins, and elongation of boltholes.
As a result of a design error decades before, the gusset plates in the bridge were about half as thick as they should have been, Ocel said.
Differences in performance of the short and long gusset plates became more obvious in the glued joints.
The main difference between the second modified design and the first was the extension of the gusset plate to the outer edge of the wing plate.
Therefore, fatigue performances of other commonly seen types, such as gusset plate and notching based joints, need to be investigated in order to obtain appropriate ratios of the static moment resistance of the joints to their fatigue moment capacities.

The test matrix included 10 fully embedded control specimens (identified as F-x, where x identifies the specimen number from 1 to 10), 10 partially embedded control specimens (P-x), 10 partially embedded and repaired clamped specimens (RC-x), and 10 partially embedded specimens repaired with lightly screwed gusset plates (RS-x).
Workers will be inspecting and replacing corroded gusset plates - pieces that help to hold structural components together - as well as rivets that have been damaged by rust.
Among the topics are the cable-stayed bridge across the River Sava in Belgrade, incorporating climate change predictions in the hydraulic analysis of bridges, new tools for inspecting gusset plates, deck truss bearing rehabilitation for the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the rapid replacement of bridges using modular systems, identifying and sharing best practices in bridge maintenance and management, and examining the forms of Hudson River bridges.
