STATISTICAL DISTRIBUTION OF AXLE-LOADS AND STRESSES IN RAILWAY BRIDGES. ESTIMATE OF THE LIFE OF STEEL RAILWAY BRIDGES WITH GIVEN TRAFFIC
Making use of the train types of several railway Administrations presented in RP 5 and based on traffic parameters (e.g. daily train numbers, annual volume) traffic spectra were compiled and the stress-time histories calculated for given influence lines. The calculation methods used are given and explained by reference to examples. Possible applications to railway bridge dimensioning and fatigue life predictions are presented.
