THE UIC 71 LOAD DIAGRAM, THE NEW BASIS FOR RAILWAY BRIDGE DESIGN

DAS BELASTUNGSBILD UIC 71, DIE NEUE BEMESSUNGSGRUNDLAGE FUER DEN EISENBAHNBRUECKENBAU

The construction of a modern international railway network, such as proposed by the European Infrastructure Master Plan, makes it necessary both to standardise and simplify the permissible load conditions for the design of railway bridges on the European continent. The recently-developed UIC 71 load diagram takes this requirement into account, and is adaptable for a wide range of the most varied traffic conditions. The author describes its principle and effects, with special reference to the effects of dynamic forces, and the ORE's work in Utrecht to determine the total increase in the dynamic loads.
