Reliability of steel railway bridges from the aspect of fatigue

Boris Androić, Darko Dujmović, Davor Skejić

Abstract

The analysis of reliability of steel railway bridges, focusing on their resistance to fatigue, is given Advantages of using probabilistic rather than deterministic approach are presented. Statistical values of basic variables are calculated. A special emphasis is placed on the basic variable known as the Miner's coefficient. The limit state equation is formulated. The reliability index is calculated for seven typical details of railway bridges built along the Zagreb - Rijeka railway line.

Keywords
