Natural rubber bearings possess distinct advantages over alternative metal roller types, being easier to install, free from corrosion and requiring no maintenance, factors important in the economics of bridge building. In use, natural rubber has proved superior to all other rubbers as a bridge bearing material The design and positioning of the bridge bearing allows the vertical loads (deck and traffic) to be taken by the rubber in compression and horizon- tal deflections (expansion and contraction) by the rubber in shear. High vertical stiffness is achieved by the insertion of horizontal metal plates, which do not alter the required low horizontal stifiness. Under maximum traffic and deck load, the amount of vertical deflection must be limited and bearings can be precisely designed so that it does not exceed a few millimetres, of which only a fraction will be due to lve load. Horizontal movements in more than one direction can be accommodated and, if necessary, the horizontal stiffness in ewo ODS LT perpendicular directions can be varied independ- ently. Some end rotation can be allowed with rubber bearings without resort to the complicated designs required with metal bearings. Construction of the rubber-metal plate sandwich is easily accomplished employing the excellent bonding to metal properties of natural rubber; the bearing may then be completely encased by a thin cover of rubber which protects the plates from corrosion and also provides a bedding surface to take up irregularities in the deck or supporting structure. Location holes may be provided in the outer steel plates as a precaution against slip. Durability is ensured as a result of the bulk of rubber in the product (low surfaceivolume ratio) and is reinforced by the inclusion of protective chemicals which increase resistance to weather- ing. Experience has shown conclusively that ‘weathering of large components made of natural rubber does not affect their service lives. The performance of natural rubber bearings is determined by the highly suitable physical properties of natural rubber :it retains ies designed stiffness at low temperatures better than alterna- tive, more expensive, synthetic rubbers and it has low creep, high strength and excellent fatigue resistance. Design Considerations The performance data of Doshin Rubber elastomeric bridge bearings presented in the following tables are calculated using shear moduli values appropriate to the strain in the rubber and 200MPa for its bulk modulus. These are indicative values for bearing selection. The maximum loads shown are calculated to the serviceability limit state as required in MS 67! and BS 5400 Part 9, assuming a dead load effect numerically equal to the live load effect. ‘Top and Bottom cover rubber thickness. 4mm Side cover rubber thickness. 6mm ‘Steel plate thickness 3mm 200mm ae PartNo DIMENSIONS CALCULATED CALCULATED AXED BEARINGS FREE BEARINGS UNLOCATED COMPRESSIVE ROTATIONAL MAXIMUM MAXIMUM MAXIMUM NAXIMUN.
