Design of soil steel composite bridges according to the Eurocode
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 new corrugations as well as new culvert profiles have been introduced. With lower heights of cover the effect of concentrated loads is becoming more pronounced.
In Sweden soil steel composite bridges are designed according to a handbook developed at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. In design the Eurocode is more and more often required. In such cases the handbook Eurocode section can be used.
In the paper an ultimate limit design procedure for a soil steel composite bridge according to the Eurocode is presented using the Swedish design handbook.
