  2. 12. Static analysis of soil-steel composite bridges in sloping terrain

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Karina Skrobic; Josefine Bergström; [2014]
    Keywords : Flexible bridge; Culvert; Soil-steel; Sliding surfaces; Sloping terrain; PLAXIS; Interface; Pettersson-Sundquist design method; Flexibel bro; Kulvert; Jord-stål; Glidytor; Lutande terräng; PLAXIS; Gränsskikt; Pettersson- Sundquist dimensioneringsmetod;

    Abstract : Soil-steel composite bridges are for many reasons very favorable bridges to build. Up to a certain span length they are economical, practical to transport and simple and quick to build. Especially in remote places, with unfavorable sloping terrain, this can be of great interest when the transport of material can be difficult and costly. READ MORE

  3. 13. Dynamic analysis of soil-steel composite railway bridges : FE-modeling in Plaxis

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Orod Aagah; Siavash Aryannejad; [2014]
    Keywords : Soil-steel composite bridge; Corrugated steel culvert; High-speed railways; FEM; Plaxis; Field measurements;

    Abstract : A soil-steel composite bridge is a structure comprised of corrugated steel plates, which are joined with bolted connections, enclosed in friction soil material on both sides and on the top. The surrounding friction soil material, or backfill, is applied in sequential steps, each step involving compaction of the soil, which is a necessity for the construction to accumulate the required bearing capacity.

  4. 14. Assessment of Finite Element Softwares for Geotechnical Calculations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geoteknik

    Author : Alex Spetz; [2012]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : When building new constructions under ground level in cities it is important that the foundations of neighboring buildings are undisturbed. The regulations regarding soil deformations are hence very strict and conventional methods of predicting soil behavior is often too crude. READ MORE

  5. 15. Soil Steel Composite Bridges : A comparison between the Pettersson-Sundquist design method and the Klöppel & Glock design method including finite element modelling

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Amer.H H. Wadi; [2012]
    Keywords : Soil-steel; Flexible bridge; Culvert; PLAXIS; Pettersson-Sundquist design method; Swedish design method; Klöppel and Glock.;

    Abstract : The need of exploring efficient solutions to today’s engineering problems is becoming essential in the current market development. Soil Steel composite bridges (SSCB) are considered well competitive in terms of their feasibility and constructability. READ MORE
