Design an RCC abutment for supporting a 55 m single span bridge. Geotechnical investigations

indicated that sound rock is available at 13 m depth from the top of the backfill to be retained by

the abutment. The allowable rock pressure is 1500 kN/m2. Consider IRC class 40 R loading.

Assume suitable data not given. Maximum total dead load of the bridge is 1400 kN. Consider

horizontal seismic force in the direction of the traffic, and vertical in the downward direction. The

bridge is located in seismic zone IV.

Solution

I.

It is proposed to rest the foundation of the abutment on the rock. Therefore ,height of abutment =

13m Keeping the height of abutment in view, the design is carried out providing front and back

counterforts as shown in Figs 9.8 and 909. The base of the foundation is rested on rock. Tentative

proportioning of the abutment, foundation slab and counterforts are shown in Fig 9.8.

The design has been carried out assuming,

Unit weight of concrete

= 25 kN/ m3

Unit weight of backfill

= 18 kN/ m3

Coefficient of base friction, = 0.65

Angle of wall friction = 2/3 = 240

Horizontal seismic coefficient Ah from Eq. (1.3) =

II.

Reaction on each abutment = 1400/2 = 700 kN

Loading due to one lane IRC class 40 R wheeled load train has been shown in Fig 9.10.

Influence line for reaction on right abutment having fixed bearing will be as shown in Fig 9.11.

Fig. 9.11 Influence line diagram for the reaction of fixed bearing

Due to one lane of IRC class 40 R wheeled load train, with a clear gap of 20 m between two

load trains, the reaction will be, maximum when the first load 120 kN coincides with point A

of influence line diagram (Fig. 9.11).

= 668.5 kN

Reaction on the left abutment, RLT = 1100 668.5 = 431.50 kN

III.

As per IRC: 6 200, for bridges having span more than 45 m , impact factor is 0.154

Therefore impact load on rocker end = 0.154 668.5 = 102.95 kN

Impact load on roller end = 0.154 431.50 = 66.45 kN

a)

Braking effect

The braking effect will be 20 percent of the first class 40 R load train (plus 10 % of the other

train),

This force acts along line parallel to roadway and 1.2 m above it. Therefore moment due to

this

Where, 1.75 m is the height of the road above the bearing pin.

Increase/ decrease in reaction in the right abutment (fixed bearing knuckle)/ left abutment

(free knuckle) respectively = 486.75/55 = moment/ span =8.85 kN

b)

As the seismic force is taken in the direction of traffic , seismic forces will not be considered

on the live load.

Horizontal seismic force on the dead load transferred from bridge deck

= 0.144 1400 = 201.6 kN

Considering that it acts at the centre of bearing,

Increase in reaction due to their force on rocker bearing = decrease in reaction on roller bearing

= 201.6 (0.25 + 0.75)/ 55 = 3.66 kN

Total reaction on roller bearing = 700 + 431.50 + 66.45 8.85 3.66 + 700 0.096

= 1252.64 kN

Coefficient of friction at roller bearing, = 0.03

Frictional force at roller bearing = 0.03 1252.64= 37.58 kN

Therefore longitudinal force at rocker bearing = (165 + 201.6)/2 + 37.58 = 220.88 kN

VI. Substituting the values of = 36o , = 24 o , = 0 o , i = 00 , Ah = 0.144 and Av = 0.096 in Eq 3.3,

we get

Ca = 0.3478.

Equation (3.3) gives the corresponding static earth coefficient ka as 0.2348.

Total seismic active earth pressure = 18 0.3478 132 = 529.0 kN

Total static active earth pressure = 18 0.2349 132 = 357.28 kN
