Fatigue design of soil steel composite bridges
2012 (English)In: Archives of Institute of Civil Engineering, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
Soil steel composite bridges are used more and more often in road and railroad bridge construction. Spans have increased and structures with spans over 20 m have been built. At the same time road designers call for lower heights of cover. At lower heights of cover the effect of concentrated loads will increase and therefore checking of the fatigue capacity is becoming more important.
The paper presents the on-going project involving fatigue testing of bolted connections used to lap corrugated steel plates in Soil Steel Composite Bridges together with an evaluation of the detail category. The project also includes the development of a design procedure for the fatigue design of a Soil Steel Composite Bridge with low height of cover according to the Eurocode.
