Investigation and Development of Bridge Formulae for Inclusion in the Performance-based Standards

Lundi, 4 Mai, 2020 - 14:15

This webinar, presented on 29 April 2020, discusses the merits of three options to advance the future of PBS access in Australia as it relates to bridges. The webinar explains the role that PBS bridge formulae play in vehicle design and approval. It looks at the historical development of the formulae and under which circumstances it most accurately predicts real world loading of PBS vehicles on different structure types and span lengths. Three options for future bridge assessment in Australia are discussed. The recommended approach is that a line model comparison methodology be implemented to drive a nationally consistent and rapid heavy vehicle-bridge assessment framework. The webinar was presented by Angus Draheim, Matthew Bereni and Neal Lake. The presentation slides can be downloaded from the supporting documents tab after logging in at
