Before, i just did simple concrete bridge. Once you are coopwr with the basic structure, you can go back and calculate peak transverse moments e. This is the industry’s manual of recommended practices for design and rating of steel structures.

I once lived in the village of Oregon, WI and was active on a public works committee. Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. It might be interesting to model an example bridge, using Cooper E rating assumptions, on a computer via FEM and see exactly how the effect of shock affects the validity of the ‘rating’.

I think you are reading too much into this. I’m quite don’t know this live load. Additional detail will be included in the follow up, so make sure to check back for that second article. I’m checking truss steel bridge railway It was built s. A bridge with an E rating is supposed to be good for a train of two?

Figure Cooper Load Configuration for Bridges

Load factors, dynamic load allowances, and other factors are then applied to these loads in the proper load combination s based on the LRFD spec.

Get our weekly newsletter delivered to your coopfr. There are two references you can use to answer your question. The whole subject needs about 2 – 3 semester long university level courses plus a seminar in AREMA loadings to be covered comprehensively. I almost always use examples from existing charts and graphs.

Personally I would also include a factor for dynamic loading which might ooading some cases represent a significant proportion of effective live load. My preference would be structural. It is ok coooer not. Are we must apply this train on all the bridge? Vehicular live loading on the roadways of bridges or incidental structures, designated HL, shall consist of a combination of the: Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. The 2nd page has formulas for adding a percentage of the live load for impact for concrete structues only.

Loafing design live load vehicles on corrugated pipe can be mostly broken down into the following three groups: If you know the rail design speed in the area of your structure, surely you could develop a step function load for a few probable train lengths.

Calculation Live load with Cooper E80

A search for “Cooper E loading” will find a lot. Here’s another diagram and a brief explanantion: Once the train got under way, one could use the dials to see just what was happening with deflections as the loaded axles went by. The factor for dynamic loading varies with the length of the bridge. The axle spacings engine and train are specified — same? Figure 1 below illustrates the axle load and spacing breakdown for both HS20 and HS25 design trucks. Member since February, 1, posts.

I think live load refers to momentshear and floor in cooper equivilant ratings. And yes, HS20 live loading can control for an HL design check. Randy Stahl Member since June, From: Do you have example for calculate by hand or word? For section transverse I have 4 I-beam so I will distribute this live load Cooper E80 on this beam like this: Train traffic was light, but mainly an occasional train of loaded iron ore cars.

The culvert section had been distorted significantly during installation, to the extent that the village olading to barricade it off in case of collapse. When I read the live load, I don’t understand ooading to apply live load cooper E80 on the bridge. Member since September, 6, posts.

So what should I do with Cooper E80? Posted by Overmod on Friday, November 09, 9: The result of these stationary readings showed the axle loadings of the locomotive to be significantly less than those of the loaded rail cars.

But in here it have many loads, I don’t understand how to calculate it. It turned out that many subsequent readings were made by the village, but the original readings before loadings always returned to the same stable numbers. Member since January, From:
