For the member section design, more than 85% of members are controlled by the design load combination of the dead load and live load. The wind load and temperature effect have little effect on the design internal force.
Initially, the bridge was subjected to a dead load distributed through both spans, then the live load component was distributed over the leftmost span (Figure 4).
The moment diagram included the impact of self-weight (DL), superimposed dead load (SDL), live load (LL), top prestressing tendons (TP) and bottom prestressing tendons (BTP).
Using the mass and center of gravity information for the wingbox, live load distributions can be developed for application in FEA to the fixture for various loadcases.
As it was described before, this behavior is not desirable because the failure probability tends to increase for higher values of live load. Also it can be observed that the reliability corresponding to high-strength concrete sections is smaller than the one corresponding to ordinary concrete.
Hindi, "Live load distribution factors for cast-in-place concrete box girder bridges," in Proceedings of the Structures Congress: Crossing Borders, April 2008.
The design live load for the bridge complies with both China's Highway Class 1 for Bridge Design Vehicle Loads and the live load provisions in the Design Manual for Roads and Railways of Hong Kong.
Since late 2010, all new bridges and ones that are being completely replaced must be load rated using the Load and Resistance Factor Rating (LRFR) method for evaluating the live load carrying capacity of bridges.
Students will design and build a tall structure that will be able to withstand a live load at the aperture of the structure.
For static analysis, GSA [5] specifies a load combination per Equations 1 and 2, where DL and LL are dead load and live load, respectively.
--the design live load is less than that of the heaviest statutory commercial vehicle plying or likely to ply on the bridge;
This is the sum of a 20-pounds-per-square-foot dead load (including a ballasted membrane roof, which was typical for roofs on shopping centers in the early 1980s, for example); for a roof live load (or snow load in some areas of the country), it's a sum of approximately 30 pounds per square foot.
