This paper presents design recommendations of non-composite reinforced concrete bridge decks subjected to fatigue due to moving loads. These recommendations are based on test results of 1/3- and 1/ scale physical models of a full-scale cm ( in.) thick and m (ft) long simply supported non-composite reinforced concrete by: 1. P. B. Morice has written: 'Design curves for the effects of concentrated loads on concrete bridge decks' Asked in Authors, Poets, and Playwrights What has the author Gerard Cox written?

Design loads In the parametric study, the design loads consisted of dead load and live load typically used in the design of precast, prestressed concrete bridge girders. These loads are defined as follows. Dead load Dead load consists of the self-weight of the precast concrete girder and reinforced concrete topping slab and superimposed dead loads. For transverse design, the segment is considered as a reinforced concrete section, and code checks are made accordingly. For this design, local distribution of wheel load, together with Self Weight and SIDL results, were Design of continuity slabs and the.

Bridge deck slabs are one of the most exposed bridge parts and are often critical for the load carrying capacity. Nowadays, design procedures for concrete slabs regarding bending moment are well-known. However, there is still a lack of well-established recommendations for distribution of shear forces from concentrated loads. Concrete floor slabs on grade are subjected to a varie ty of loads and loading conditions. The design procedure includes determini ng slab thickness based on moving live loads and then checking adequacy of slab thickness for stationary live load. The design procedure separately incl udes determining thickness of slab under wall Size: KB.

B = load footprint width transverse to the deck span. When the load centroid is not at the center of the footprint, let B equal twice the least dimension from the centroid to the baseplate edge; inches.

be = effective distribution width; inches X = percentage of span, measured from the nearest support to the center of the concentrated load, ≤ structural failures of properly designed bridge decks are known. Thus, increasing the design shear ca-pacity of bridge decks seems to be possible.

This paper presents results from slab tests and statistical evaluations of a shear database which justify a significant increase in design shear for concrete bridge decks. 1 INTRODUCTION. Load Capacity of Concrete Bridge Decks ultimate capacity of bridge decks.

The Ontario bridge deck design resulted from ex­ 1 and 2, respectively [curves and Bmax values from Beal (lll.

These results are compared with the 71 Figure 3. Punching failure on model 1. Meant for design engineers, contractors, their clients and field engineers, the book presents a practical and systematic methodology to enable quick and accurate design decisions.

A step-by-step approach has been adopted throughout the text reflecting the order in which a practicing professional might proceed for designing a concrete bridge.

The concrete subcontractor poured the concrete decks to finish floor elevation, not to deck thickness which is required per note CP‐4.

The concrete acts as a live load during the pours and on this project caused the steel to deflect up to 2” in some cases because no shoring was required. Design codes are issued by a professional organization interested in insuring safety and standards.

They are legally backed by the engineering profession. Different design methods are used, but they typically defined the load cases or combination, stress or strength limits, and deflection limits.

Example Problems For Concentrated Loads Example 1: Point Load This problem is designed to demonstrate how to check the ability of a composite slab to carry a lb point load over an area of " x " occurring anywhere in the span.

often increase the degree of risk. Concentrated loads, such as construction materials stacked on the formwork, non-symmetrical placement of concrete, uplift, impact of machine delivered concrete, use of motorized carts and extreme formwork height, are examples that produce high risk factors.

A design procedure for slabs subjected to concentrated loads is presented. Current procedures, except for bridge decks, do not specifically treat concen-trated loads.

The five-step procedure provides for the actions peculiar to concentrated loads as well as the effects of all : Joseph A. Appleton. The design lane load consists of a load of klf ( kN/m) uniformly distributed in the longitudinal direction.

Transversely, the design lane load is assumed to be uniformly distributed over a m ( ft) width. The force effects from the design lane load are not be subject to a dynamic load allowance.

Denton, M. Feldmann, R. Frank. bined with a single moving concentrated load, positioned to produce the maximum stress (for continuous spans, two concentrated loads -- one placed in each of two adjoining spans -- are used to determine maximum negative moment).

Both the uniform load and the concentrated loads are assumed to be transversely distributed over a foot Size: KB. An improved methodology was created by refining the guidance for estimating wave loads on bridge decks. This new methodology demonstrates a significant increase in the reliability of wave load estimates on a bridge superstructure during severe storm conditions.

Static Behavior of Noncomposite Concrete Bridge Decks under Concentrated Loads. This moment per unit length can then be converted into a equivalent uniform load due to the concentrated load by back solving the equation M = w*L 2 /8.

The equivalent uniform load can then be added to any superimposed loads and self weight to get a total uniform load on the metal deck.bottom of the bridge deck in the primary direction. 2. Shear Effects. By using the strip method, an 8-in. deck is designed for flexure, and shear effects can be neglected.
