Abstract

 This paper aims to evaluate the structural performance of PC bridge girders damaged by chloride induced deterioration by using FE analysis code. In this analysis, the authors considered with corrosive mass loss and mechanical behavior for PC steel bars, which were obtained by investigation research of the target structure. The analysis has been conducted not only to eval uate the decreasing in structural performance, but also to verify infl uence on eccentrically-location of deteri orated girders. As a result, it is clarified that the structural perfor mance of the target bridge deck has gone down 24% after 32 years in service. Also the ductility tremendously decreased by excessive corrosion of PC steel bar, because the failure mode will change from concrete crashing to the PC bar rupturing. Fathermore, the structural performance will bring disadvantage by eccentri cally-location of deteriorated girders.
