Investigation of assessment methods for railway masonry arch bridges (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Wang, J., Haynes, B., & Melbourne, C. (2018, October). Investigation of assessment methods for railway masonry arch bridges. Presented at 8th International Conference on Arch Bridges, Wroclaw, Poland

Although masonry arch bridge research over the last few decades has spawned several advanced capacity assessment tools, the maintenance and assessment of these bridges is still a constant concern for the bridge owners. There have been many appeals fo... Read More about Investigation of assessment methods for railway masonry arch bridges.

Influence of the span rise ratio on the capacity of masonry arch bridges (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Donaghy, J., Wang, J., & Augusthus Nelson, L. (2014, July). Influence of the span rise ratio on the capacity of masonry arch bridges. Presented at 9th International Masonry Conference, GuimarĂ£es, Portugal

Current standards promote a holistic approach in appraisal of masonry arch bridges. This is derived from the aspect of a perfect arch with specific span rise ratios. The MEXE (Military Engineering Experimental Establishment) method used as first stag... Read More about Influence of the span rise ratio on the capacity of masonry arch bridges.

A comparison between the MEXE and Pippard's methods of assessing the load carrying capacity of masonry arch bridges (2013)
Journal Article
Wang, J., Haynes, B., & Melbourne, C. (2013). A comparison between the MEXE and Pippard's methods of assessing the load carrying capacity of masonry arch bridges

The Military Engineering eXperimental Establishment (MEXE) method is a long established system of masonry arch load carrying capacity assessment. It has been subject to review in recent years and some shortcomings have been identified. There is now g...
