Figure Cooper Load Configuration for Bridges

The whole subject needs about 2 – 3 semester long university level courses plus a seminar in AREMA loadings to be covered comprehensively. Hi, I’m new student in university. My preference would be structural. He designed them and I built them.

Hello everyone, I was looking for dynamic loading of Cooper E80? I was able to get one planned measuring event where I could control just which axle was over the reference location. I have model 3D, so I will distribute live load on the beam like this: Member since June, From: I almost always use examples from existing charts and graphs.

So what should I do with Cooper E80? It is ok or not.

Calculation Live load with Cooper E80

But in here it have many loads, I don’t understand how to calculate it. Close this window and log in. Posted by Tran Anh on Wednesday, November 07, 9: It is ok or not I think you are reading too much into this.

Tran Anh On the deck we have 2 rails, so Cooper E80 will divide 2 each rail. We must change cooper E80 to only one load or just push it on the line? Randy Stahl Member since June, From: The answer is easier than you would expect.

I worked with John for many years at CP. The design tandem shall consist of a pair of kip axles spaced 4 feet apart and the transverse spacing of the wheels shall be taken as 6 feet. It’s easy to join and it’s free. A bridge with an E rating is supposed to be good for a train of two? I’m quite don’t know this live load.

Yes Overmod, That’s exactly what I’m doing. Design truck HS20 or design tandem, and Design lane load 0.

And yes, HS20 live loading can control for an HL design check. For section transverse I have 4 I-beam so I will distribute this live load Loadjng E80 on this beam like this: So I must ask expert like you, Paul, Steve I will find this book to learn more.

Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. Overmod That’s exactly I xooper do. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Do you have example for calculate by hand or word?


There are two references you can use to answer your question. Others are more qualified to answer this. Tran Anh Member since November, 7 posts. Students Click Here Join Us! The second loaded lpading is spaced far enough away that it will have a negligible impact on the pipe design. On the deck we have 2 rails, so Cooper E80 will divide 2 each rail. An illustration and some comments on the loading ee80 can be found here: Please view our privacy policy.

Personally I would also include a factor for dynamic loading which might in some cases represent a significant proportion of effective live load. I think live load refers to momentshear and floor in cooper equivilant ratings. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!

It might be interesting to model an example bridge, using Cooper E rating assumptions, on a computer via FEM and see exactly how the effect of shock affects the validity of the ‘rating’. For lateral surcharge against walls, I have never seen any railroad require a “dynamic analysis” for the E80 load.
