Publication Description

The design process of a bridge includes several steps. One of the major steps is the determination of actions and combinations of actions. This book intends to help the designer to acquire a knowledge of the appropriate Eurocodes (EN 1990and EN 1991) and parts of these Eurocodes.

The design process of a bridge includes several steps. One of the major steps is the determination of actions and combinations of actions. These actions are imposed loads due to traffic (road, pedestrian, railway traffic), climatic actions (wind, snow, thermal actions), actions due to water or soil subsidence, construction loads and accidental actions. Of course, the relevant combinations of actions need to be defined for permanent, transient and accidental design situations. The purpose of this handbook is to help the designer to acquire a good knowledge of the appropriate Eurocodes (EN 1990and EN 1991) and parts of these Eurocodes.
