A Newsletter from CROSS-UK containing reports on structural safety issues.
Note: this Newsletter was published by CROSS (Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety). Since March 2021, Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety is renamed Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures (CROSS).
A reporter is concerned that a failure in recent years involving the cast connections at each end of vertical bars, which connected to a bow string arch at one end and to a bridge deck at the other, may be in use elsewhere.
The following report is intended to raise concern regarding the structural adequacy, quality control and inspection techniques used in the manufacture of proprietary bar systems, in particular the cast end terminations of the bar systems.
