POD 76 - DOUBLE OPEN PORTAL FRAME

POD 76 - PORTIQUE OUVERT DOUBLE

The POD pilot file (reinforced concrete double open portal frames) constitutes an extension of the PIPO pilot file (lower passages in open portal bridges), referring to a structure very similar to that of a single open portal bridge, but capable of crossing much larger gaps very economically and being very simple to construct. The present document describes this type of structure and its field of application, and its rapid design; a theoretical note analyses the structure, presenting a computer program used by SETRA and the consulting firm Sogelerg TP; finally a complete worked example is given. In the pilot file, only matters relating specifically to POD are discussed, in particular the field of application and operating mode. The reader is referred to the PIPO file for matters common to both cases. (TRRL)
