Strengthening of the riveted steel railway bridges

Branko Zaklan

Abstract

It is emphasized that many of the existing steel railway bridges have been built a long time ago, especially those in which riveted connections are used. Such bridges should be strengthened to take into account an increase in traffic load and higher dynamic influences. An inadequate design solution is presented and unfavorable effects of its implementation are analyzed. A more adequate solution, used in the strengthening of an existing bridge, is also described. Both designs are critically analyzed and one of the suggested solutions is recommended.
