Modelling of traffic load effects in the assessment of existing road bridges

Dominik Skokandić, Ana Mandić Ivanković, Aleš Žnidarič, Mladen Srbić

Abstract

Traffic load models used for the design of new bridges are based on conservative assumptions and have not been proven efficient for assessing safety of existing bridges. In the case of existing bridges, it is reasonable to use load models that are based on bridge weigh-in-motion data which, in addition to axle loads and spacing of bridge-crossing vehicles, provide information on bridge behaviour under traffic load. This paper provides an overview of traffic load models, as well as guidelines on the use of weigh-in-motion data when assessing condition of existing road bridges.

Keywords
