OVERVIEW

Composite Steel Integral Bridges are quite popular for highway bridges spanning between 30m to 45m and with skew less than 30 degrees. Structural steelwork provides a lighter and quicker construction with adequate structural capacity. Integral bridges have additional benefit of good ride quality, increased durability and a robust structural behaviour.

 

With all the benefits of integral bridges, there are design challenges especially when it comes to interaction of the structure with geotechnics. This webinar will discuss an example of a composite steel integral bridge and will cover the analysis and design concepts used for such bridges.

KEY POINTS

Key point 1: How to decide on the various bridge parameters

The webinar will discuss on how the bridge geometry was decided, key construction parameters considered and major determinants to selecting the foundation size and layout.

 

Key point 2: What are the key loads to be considered in the Integral Bridge Design

The webinar will discuss various scenarios of loading including the effect of thermal expansion and contraction in conjunction with earth pressure effects and different live load combinations acting on the bridge from a UK and Eurocode perspective.

 

Key point 3: Analysis and Design Consideration

The webinar will discuss on how to efficiently setup the analysis model to reflect a grillage deck, soil-structure interaction in the piles and how to use the automated capacity calculation tools in MIDAS.
