Composite highway bridge design: Worked examples (SCI P357)

This publication is the second in a set of SCI bridge design guides that reflect the rules in the Eurocodes. It presents two worked examples, one for a two-span multi-girder integral bridge and the other for a three-span ladder deck bridge. The calculations illustrate the principal design considerations that are discussed in the companion publication (P357).

The examples include:

  • Summary of design situations to be considered and applicable actions
  • Illustration of the global analysis model and tabulation of results
  • Evaluation of design values of effects at key locations, during construction and in service
  • Verification of the adequacy of the bare steel girders during construction and the composite girders in service
  • Verification of longitudinal shear connection and fatigue resistance.
