COMPOSITE STRUCTURES OF STEEL AND CONCRETE. VOLUME 2. BRIDGES WITH A COMMENTARY ON BS5400:PART 5

Recent achievements and trends in Western Europe in the conception and design of bridge superstructures of structural steel and concrete acting compositely are examined and available methods of analysis are summarised. The interpretation of limit-state design philosophy in part 5 of British Standard 5400 "The Bridge Code" is explained and a detailed presentation and explanation of typical design calculations is given in four worked examples. There are chapters on: conception and global analysis of the superstructure, design of superstructure for beam and slab bridges, box girders and composite plates, fatigue, permanent formwork in bridge decks, cased beam and filler beam construction, prestressing of composite beams, composite columns, construction. The following appendices are included: control of cracking by limiting the spacing of reinforcing bars, stresses due to temperature and shrinkage, fatigue strength of shear connectors, a modified perry formula to represent the European curves for steel struts, ultimate moment of resistance of a concrete filled steel circular hollow section, formulae for the elastic analysis of a beam with one change of cross-section. The fundamentals of composite construction such as the basic structural properties of composite cross sections and members, and an account of methods of shear connection, are presented in volume 1. /TRRL/
