Analysis of Moving Load on Cable-Stayed Bridges Using Staad Pro

Stays can be used to support orthotropic bridge decks which consists of continuous girders. The stays which are inclined cables passing over or pinned...

Design of Pile Foundation System for Bridge Piers

Piles are the most preferred type of foundation for supporting the piers of overhead bridges. They offer greater resistance to vertical and horizontal actions...

Design of Bridge Pier and Pier Cap

Bridge pier caps are horizontal structural members used for transferring bridge deck loads to the piers, before they are transferred to the foundation. They...

Application of Courbon’s Theory in the Analysis of T-Beam Bridge Decks

Courbon’s theory is one of the popular classical methods of analysing slab and beam girder (T-beam) bridges. However, the results obtained from the method...

Waste Tyres can Improve Seismic Performance of Integral Abutment Bridges

Resuse of about 1.5 billion waste tyres that are produced annually worldwide inspired this research on the behaviour of rubberised backfills for integral abutment...

Analysis and design of counterfort retaining walls using Staad Pro

Retaining walls are structures used for supporting earth at different levels. There are different types of retaining walls such as cantilever retaining walls, gravity...

Analysis of Vehicle Collision on Bridge Piers

EN 1991-1-7 discussed and gave guidance on accidental actions and their applications in the design calculations for bridge structures. It is obvious that there...

Analysis of Wind Load on Bridge Decks

In the design of bridges, environmental actions such as wind, snow, and temperature should also be considered alongside traffic actions. In this article, we...

Analysis of Box Girder Bridges Using Staad Pro

A box girder is formed when two web plates are joined by a common flange at both the top and the bottom. The closed...

Analysis of Moving Load on Bridges Using Staad Pro

Every code of practice for bridge design has provision for modelling of traffic action as moving loads. This is similar to the idea of...

Analysis and Design of Box Culvert Using Staad Pro

In our last post, we were able to establish how we can load box culverts properly. If you missed the post, kindly follow the...

Loading and Design of Box Culverts to Eurocodes
