USE OF LONG WELDED RAILS OVER BRIDGES

At present, use of LWR on girder bridges is limited to spans varying from 60 m to 100 m. This is a major constraint in extending the length of individual LWRs. From an analysis of the stresses in LWR on girder bridges, it is shown that LWR can be used on girder bridges on any span provided rail fracture is prevented by adoption of suitable techniques.
