DD = downdrag (wind) DC = dead Load of d dL d f structural and nonstructural components DW = dead load of wearing surface EH = earth pressure (horizontal) EL = secondary forces such as from posttensioning ES = earth surcharge load (vertical) EV = earth pressure (vertical) BR = breaking force of vehicle CE = centrifugal force of vehicle (at curves) CR = creep of concrete CT = vehicle collision force (on bridge or at piers) CV = vessel collision force (bridge piers over river) EQ = earthquake FR = friction IC = ice IM = d dynamic load of vehicles i l d f hi l LL = live load of vehicle (static) LS = live load surcharge PL = pedestrian load SE = settlement SH = shrinkage of concrete g TG = load due to temperature differences TU = load due to uniform temperature WA = water load/ stream pressure WL = wind on vehicles on bridge WS = wind load on structure

Typical Loads T i lL d
Dead Loads: DC/DW Live Loads of Vehicles: LL Pedestrian Load: PL Dynamic (Impact) Loads: IM

Dead Load: DC
Dead load includes the self weight of: structural components such as girder, slabs, cross beams, etc… nonstructural components such as medians, railings, signs, etc… But does not i l d the weight of wearing surface (asphalt) B d include h i h f i f ( h l) We can estimate dead load from the material’s density
Material Concrete (Normal Weight.) Concrete (Lightweight) Steel Aluminum Alloy Wood y Stone Masonry Density (kg/m3) 2400 1775-1925 7850 2800 800-960 2725

Dead Load of Wearing Surface: DW
It is the weight of the wearing surface (usually asphalt) and utilities ( i ( ll h lt) d tiliti (pipes, lighting, etc…) Different category is needed due to large variability of the weight compared with those of structural components (DC)
Asphalt surface may be thicker than designed and may get laid on top of old layer over and over

Density of asphalt paving material = 2250 kg/m3 Average Thickness of asphalt on bridge = 9 cm

Tributary Area for Dead Loads y
Dead loads are distributed to girder through Tributary Area

DC, DW
Section for maximum moment is not the same as the section for maximum shear For simply-supported beams
Maximum M occurs at midspan Maximum V occurs over the support
As we shall see in the designs of girders, the Critical Section for shear is about d from the support.(where d is the effective depth of section, approximately 0.8h) At this point, shear is slightly lower than at the support. If we use shear at the support for the design of stirrups, we are conservative.

V=wL/2 V= L/2

Live Loads of Vehicles: LL

Live Loads of Vehicles: LL
Live load is the force due to vehicles moving on the bridge There are several types of yp vehicles
Car Van V Buses Trucks Semi-Trailer Special vehicles Military vehicles

The effect of live load on the bridge structures depends on many parameters including:
span length weight of vehicle axle l d (load per wheel) l loads (l d h l) axle configuration position of the vehicle on the bridge (transverse and longitudinal) number of vehicles on the bridge b f hi l h b id (multiple presence) g girder spacing p g stiffness of structural members (slab and girders)

Live Loads of Vehicles: LL

Bridge LL vs. Building LL
BRIDGE LL is very heavy (several tons per wheel) ) LL can be series of point loads (wheel loads of trucks) or uniform loads (loads of smaller vehicles) Need to consider the placement within a span to get the maximum effect p g Loads occur in one direction within lanes Need t N d to consider also the placement of id l th l t f loads in multiple spans (for continuous span bridges) Dynamic effects of live load cannot be ignored BUILDING LL is not very heavy, typical 300-500 kg/m2 g LL is assumed to be uniformly distributed within a span Do not generally consider placement of load within a span Loads are transferred in to 2 directions Need to consider various placements of loads for the entire floor Do not generally consider dynamic/impact effect of live loads
