    The main conclusion of this research is that the redundancy exists in twin steel boxgirder bridges in an event that a fracture of a tension member s takes place. This limits the transverse spacing of webs to about 4m. The composite steel girder will have more area for bottom flange than that of the top flange and as such the steel section will be unsymmetrical about horizontal axis. Design for Flexure: The bending moments induced by the loads on the non-composite steel girders shall be resisted by the non-composite section and those due lo loads coming on the composite section shall be resisted by the composite section. The project specification should generally follow recognised industry standards, such as the Specification for Highway Works [1].

    Some bridges were strengthened a few years after opening and then further strengthened years later, although this was often due to increased traffic load as much as better design standards. Design of Transverse Shear Reinforcement: The longitudinal shear force, VL per unit length transferred from the steel girder to the deck slab through any shear plane shall not exceed either of the following and transverse shear reinforcement shall be provided accordingly. As in rigid shear connectors, anchorage device shall be provided in some of the flexible shear connectors where it is necessary to prevent the separation viz. While minimising cost may be the most obvious consideration when embarking on the design of a steel bridge, the health and safety of all those concerned in the construction of the bridge and in its maintenance throughout its life is the responsibility of all those people making decisions about the procurement of the bridge. Refined calibration was required to propose load factors LRFD dedicated to light rail bridges, because the level of uncertainty associated with light rail transit loading is different from that with highway traffic loading. In such ease, the dead load of the steel girders and the deck slab including its form-work is carried by the non-composite steel girders but the second stage of dead loads and live loads are carried by the composite section.

    The deck slab is of nominally uniform thickness, about mm thick. To cater for differential shrinkage stresses, minimum tensile reinforcement in the longitudinal direction in the deck slab shall be provided which shall not be less than 0. The distribution coefficient for outer girder as obtained for T-beam bridge is 1. Assuming a steel stress for M. Steel box girders are also used as stiffening girders of suspension bridges.

Quicker in construction as no staging is required to be made for the casting of deck Proposed design specifications for steel box girder bridges book, if desired. Step Most of the bridges still under construction at this time were delayed for investigation of the basic design principle.

At the initial stage when the concrete is green, some shrinkage takes place but from the time the concrete gains strength, the shrinkage is prevented by the shear connectors provided at the interface since the top flange of the steel girder does not shrink.

For railways on new alignments, where construction depth may not be so tightly constrained, the track can be carried on a slab-on-beam composite bridge, in the Proposed design specifications for steel box girder bridges book way as used for highways.

Some bridges were strengthened a few years after opening and then further strengthened years later, although this was often due to increased traffic load as much as better design standards. Step 6. Minimum transverse reinforcement is given by, Top and bottom bars provided for bending in case of slab and girder bridge Fig.

A comprehensive lit- erature review was conducted to understand the state of the art of rail bridges at large published literature on light rail bridges was limited relative to that of bridges carrying conventional heavy- haul and high-speed trains.

Implicit and explicit modeling approaches were employed, depending upon the nature of technical subjects. The existing deflection control criteria were substantially conservative e.

Hence cm. Moment of Inertia of the Compound Section In addition to the experimentally verified finite element method, the report also proposes simplified methods for evaluating the load-carrying capacity of twin steel box-girder bridges under vii concentrated loads and provides a list of important factors that could control the reserve capacity of the damaged bridge.

Step 1. All internal stiffening and diaphragms must therefore be designed such that openings are big enough and that movement along the cell is unimpeded. The instant bridge is a combination of steel and concrete and as such an average impact factor may be considered in the design of shear connectors.

Effective Flange Width: The effective flange width of T or L beams shall be least of the following: a In case of T-beams: i One fourth the effective span of the beam. Centrifugal and longitudinal forces were inves- tigated experimentally and numerically; however, there was no information dedicated to light rail bridges.

Design of Shear Connectors: The shear connectors will start functioning when the concrete of the deck slab gains maturity.for the design of bridge members using a press-brake to cold form the shape of girders.

Therefore, the researchers checked their tub girder design in accordance with the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) specifications. In the proposed design, a prestressed concrete deck would be precast with an embedded shear stud plate, which.
