Course Description

The course "Design Loads Considered on Bridges" describes in detail how to idealize and apply various loads during the bridge's lifetime, whether they are temporary or permanent. In twelve sessions, you will find detailed information about the codal provisions governing the specification of different loads on bridges. Each week features a different load, followed by a demo session. The first week begins with dead loads. Sample numerically solved problems are presented and discussed the assumptions used in the calculation of dead loads. The presentation is followed with a Staad Pro Demo session, where a bridge structure can be fully modelled and dead loads calculated. Week two and three will then present the live load according to Indian Railway standards (IRS), loading. With examples, the class A and B vehicular loadings, Metro train loading, Broad gauge loading, and tracked 70R loading were all explained. We now move on to week 4, where we will discuss the effects of soil and horizontal loading caused by earth pressure. This week, we will discuss the different types of Earth pressure. Week five will be about wind loading on bridges. This section briefly shows the IS 875 part 3 codebook and its description on wind load calculation. These two staad demonstration sessions show how to apply wind load in bridge structures. Week 6 focuses on the different utility loads and seismic loads that are applied to the bridge structure. The Indian roads congress has also specified week seven and eight as the water current, centrifuge, and impact loads. Every week features a software demo session in which the load discussed that week is applied to staad pro model. This step-by-step procedure explains how it works. Week nine focuses on wave loads and their effect on bridge superstructures. The temperature, shrinkage, crash barrier loads, hand rail loads, and combinations of load are covered in weeks ten, eleven, and twelve. Each session of twelve weeks has a challenge that must be completed by each student.
