Abstract [en]

This paper describes some of the research background needed for the development of the Swedish design method for Soil Steel Composite Bridges. The research work was undertaken at the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, division of Structural Engineering and Bridges, at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. With spans growing larger and heights of cover smaller, the aim was to develop a design method that could be used in everyday design work. The design method, based on several full-scale tests, is today a code requirement in Sweden and Finland and is in use in several other countries in Europe. This paper describes some of the background to the design method, but also on-going research and planned future developments.
