  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Soil Steel Composite Bridges for High-Speed Railways : 2D FEM analysis of the Björnbo Bridge

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Joakim Woll; [2014]
    Keywords : Soil-Steel Composite Bridge; SSCB; Dynamic analysis; Björnbo Bridge; High-speed railways; FEM; Soil-Steel culvert; High-Speed Railway Soil-Steel Composite Bridge; Rörbro; Dynamisk analys; Björnbo rörbro; Höghastighetståg; FEM; Höghastighetståg rörbro; Dynamisk analys rörbro;

    Abstract : This research aims to analyse the dynamic behaviour of Soil-Steel Composite Bridges when subjected by high-speed trains. the analyses of the dynamic response for these structures are needed since there is little research performed in the present field of knowledge. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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. 4. Soil Steel Composite Bridges. An international survey of full scale tests and comparison with the Pettersson-Sundquist design method

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Alberto Moreo Mir; [2013]
    Keywords : Soil steel; culvert; Pettersson-Sundquist design method; soil modulus; database; live load test and full scale tests.;

    Abstract : Nowadays, many different efficient solutions are being studied to solve engineering problems. Inside this group of solutions we can find the Soil Steel Composite Bridges (SSCB) as an alternative to traditional bridges. READ MORE

  5. 5. Dynamic analysis of soil-steel composite bridges for high speed railway traffic : Case study of a bridge in Märsta, using field measurements and FE-analysis

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Peyman Mellat; [2012]
    Keywords : Soil-Steel Composite Bridge; Flexible Corrugated Steel Culvert; Structural Dynamics; Acceleration; High-Speed Trains; Field Measurement; FEM;

    Abstract : Soil-steel composite bridge refers to structures where a buried flexible corrugated steel pipe works in composite action with the surrounding soil. These structures are being increasingly used in road and railway projects as an alternative to standard type bridges, e.g. short- and medium span concrete beam- and portal frame bridges. READ MORE
