OVERVIEW

Bridges having superstructure and substructure integrated together with no bearing to transmit forces between the two are known as Integral bridges.

Integral bridges offer easy maintenance and better structural efficiency due to absence of expansion joints and bearings. Moreover, it improves ride comfort and improves durability since rain, snow, and chloride cannot penetrate the substructure.

However, displacement due to thermal expansion and contraction is limited in an integral bridge and effects of creep and shrinkage could cause extra stresses in the concrete superstructure, so it must be properly simulated.

FCM wizard in Midas Civil to construct long span bridges with Balanced Cantilever Method readily uses the advantage of Integral bridges and are used often.

KEY POINTS

Key Point 1: Importance of Integral Bridge and types of Foundation for Integral Bridge

Integral bridges offer considerably high durability than simply supported bridges and easy construction, inspection and maintenance. Codes recommend integral bridges for shorter span generally.

 

Key Point 2: Modeling of PSC Composite Integral Bridge

Step by step modelling using Node-element method is explained and manual generation of Construction Stages is performed. Also, Creep, Shrinkage as time dependent variation based on Eurocode is simulated in the model.

 

Key Point 3: Earth Pressure, Thermal Loads and Soil structure Interaction for Integral Bridges

Midas Civil offers automatic simulation of Soil structure interaction using “Abutment Springs” boundary feature. Barry Lehane procedure which considers the nonlinear behavior of soils in the definition of soil springs is adopted. Thermal Loads for Uniform and Gradient variation and Earth pressure is applied.

 

Key point 4: Design of PSC Composite Bridge based on Eurocode

Automated design shall be demonstrated will include the ultimate limit state checks and serviceability limit state checks as per Eurocode.

 

Key point 5: Case Study: Forder Valley Viaduct Integral bridge (UK)

A brief overview is mentioned explaining the various options available for modelling an integral bridge in terms of foundation and soil structure interaction. Finally, a quick description of the results obtained is discussed.
