The effect of the design of goods vehicle suspensions on loads on roads and bridges / by C.G.B. Mitchell. Author. Mitchell, C. G. B. Other Authors. Transport and Road Research Laboratory Published. Crowthorne, Berkshire: Vehicles and Environment Division, Vehicles Group, Transport and Road Research Laboratory, Physical Description. the effect of the design of goods vehicle suspensions on loads on roads and bridges This report examines the ways in which heavy goods vehicle suspensions apply unexpectedly large loads to road Cited by: 9. On bridges, the increases for dynamic effects are related to 4 factors that may, in consequence, induce unauthorized loads: the quality of pavement evenness; the condition of the suspensions of the vehicles; - tyre/road interaction; the dynamic responses of the bridges to excitation by traffic.
So it is the WHEEL LOAD (and size) that has an effect on the performance of the cantilever. Vehicle configuration affects the performance of a bridge in a number of ways. The gross load of a vehicle affects the beams of the bridge, with distributed loads causing less stress on the beams than concentrated loads. to compute traffic load effects on bridges, in order to assess structural design, to calibrate load models to be used in bridge codes, or to evaluate fatigue damages and lifetimes. Load effects (such as stresses) vs time, are computed using multi-lane traffic data files and theoretical or experimental influence surfaces. Among others, CASTOR. The Damaging Effects of Overloaded Heavy Vehicles on Roads (Pad27 - revised). While damage to the road network by heavy vehicles cannot be eliminated, it is clearly in the interest of the travelling public and the road haulier that all reasonable steps be taken to minimise the deterioration of our roads File Size: 2MB. Life-cycle provisions related to highway structures, including bridges and footbridges, bridge components, signals gantries, road restraint systems, and tunnels. Drainage Life-cycle provisions related to highway drainage systems.
Group of loads gr4 This group of loads corresponds to the loading of the bridge (carriageway + footways) by a crowd. It has to be taken into account when required by the client or the relevant authority. Group of loads gr5 This group of loads is based on the consideration of special (abnormal) vehicles. The effects of passive, semi-active and active suspension designs on dynamic road loading are compared. Attention is given to develop an accurate vehicle model with useful tandem suspension behavior. A nonlinear two-dimensional model of tractor-semitrailer is by: 4. There are other environmental and operational loads that also feature diurnal and seasonal variations, in particular traffic. As well as directly affecting vibration levels, vehicles alter mass properties while imposing static loads that result in deck deflections and (in a suspension bridge) cable tension changes. This particular effect on dynamic. Ding et al.  evaluated the dynamic vehicle axle loads on bridges with different surface conditions. With the development of field testing technology, field tests have proven to be the best.
