C&CA/CIRIA-RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE USE OF GRILLAGE ANALYSIS FOR SLAB AND PSEUDO-SLAB BRIDGE DECKS

THIS BOOKLET CONTAINS RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE USE OF GRILLAGE ANALYSIS FOR SLAB AND PSEUDO-SLAB BRIDGE DECKS, BASED ON THE COMPARISONS MADE IN THE CEMENT AND CONCRETE ASSOCIATION'S RESEARCH REPORT 21. THE RESEARCH REPORT DESCRIBES IN DETAIL THE COMPARISONS MADE BETWEEN THE RESULTS FROM 53 MODEL AND FULL-SIZE BRIDGES AND THOSE PREDICTED BY GRILLAGE ANALYSIS. GUIDANCE IS GIVEN ON THE CHOICE OF COMPUTER PROGRAM, THE LAYOUT OF GRILLAGE BEAMS TO REPRESENT THE ACTUAL STRUCTURE AND THE METHODS OF CALCULATING THE STRUCTURAL PARAMETERS. ALSO A METHOD OF INTERPRETING THE GRILLAGE RESULTS INTO THE FORM REQUIRED FOR THE DESIGN OF THE STRUCTURE IS SHOWN, TOGETHER WITH SOME SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO DESIGN THE REIN- GOTVINH DYRRL GOT FIGGRTRNY FORMS OF CONSTRUCTION. AN APPENDIX CONTAINS THE FORMULAE NECESSARY FOR CALCULATING THE TORSIONAL STIFFNESSES REQUIRED FOR THE VARIOUS FORMS OF VONDYTUVYION. S DRVONF SPPRNFIX COMPRISES A SERIES OF EXAMPLES OF GRILLAGE BEAM LAYOUT FOR NINE COMMON FORMS OF CONSTRUCTION AND GEOMETRY. THERE IS ENOUGH INFORMATION IN THIS BOOKLET FOR AN ENGINEER TO ANALYZE AND DESIGN A BRIDGE DECK BY USING A GRILLAGE ANALOGY. REFERENCE TO THE RESEARCH REPORT NEED BE MADE ONLY FOR BACKGROUND INFORMA- TION. A SELECTED SET OF REFERENCES FROM THE RESEARCH REPORT IS REPEATED IN THIS BOOKLET. THESE REPEATED REFERENCES IN- CLUDE ALL THOSE WHICH REFER TO THE ACTUAL UTILIZATION OF GRILLAGE ANALYSIS; THE FIRST 119 IN RESEARCH REPORT 21, WHICH ARE OMITTED FROM THIS REPORT, ARE CONCERNED SOLELY WITH THE BACKGROUND COMPARISONS. /AUTHOR/
