The Cooper E80 Loading (4) is useful for the overall design of a bridge in terms. Vertical pressure q shall be based on a distribution width Ld. Ld Is the length of tie plus H,. H, is the height from the bottom of tie to the top of.

I almost always use examples from existing charts and graphs.

The second loaded axle is spaced far enough away that it will have a negligible impact on the pipe design. The requirement is to take the 80, axle load, multiply it by 1. Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden.

HL loading is representative of the worst case between these two loading scenarios. Thank for your help. The design tandem shall consist of a pair of e08 axles spaced 4 feet apart and the transverse spacing of the wheels shall be taken as 6 feet. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail.

For E loading, after the 2 lading. I’m checking truss steel bridge railway It was built s. Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community.


Figure Cooper Load Configuration for Bridges

I have already modelled it with static line loads based on AREMA procedures, however, now I have to perform some dynamic analyses. On the deck we have 2 loacing, so Cooper E80 will divide 2 each rail. This means that there are two loadings that need to be checked.

Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. Do you think cooper E80 like lane load in design normal bridge? A majority of what will be covered in this article goes loadimg design methodology. Yes Overmod, That’s exactly what I’m doing. It is ok or not. Login or Register Customer Service. Hello everyone, I was looking for dynamic loading of Cooper E80? Member since September, 6, posts. Both vertical and horizontal dimensions were measured.

I suspect these are relatively slight compared to effect of longitudinal loads and would be considered part of the factor of safety rather than explicitly included.

And yes, HS20 live loading can control for an HL design check. Personally I would also include a factor for dynamic loading which might in some cases represent a significant proportion of effective live load. Are you an Engineering professional?

Calculation Live load with Cooper E80

Allentown, PA 9, posts. Close this window and log in. When I read the live load, I don’t understand how to apply live load cooper E80 on the bridge.

Posted by steve14 on Thursday, November 08, I will model FEM and I will apply load in this. A search for “Cooper E loading” will find a lot. If you know the rail design speed in the area of your structure, surely you could develop a step function load for a few probable train lengths. Please view our privacy policy.


Design truck HS20 or design tandem, and Design lane load 0. I don’t know it’s wrong or can accept, so i wanna to ask expert like you, Paul, Steve It turned out that many subsequent readings were made by the village, but the original readings before loadings always returned to the same stable numbers.

Standard design live load vehicles on corrugated pipe can be mostly broken down into the following three groups: The result of these stationary readings showed the axle loadings of the locomotive to be significantly less than those of the loaded rail cars. So I want to ask experts like you, Paul, Steve It might be interesting to model an example bridge, using Cooper E rating assumptions, on a computer via FEM and see exactly how the effect of shock affects the validity of the ‘rating’.
