Design guide for ladder deck bridges (P339)

This publication provides design guidance on a particular form of composite highway bridge - the ladder deck form. It compliments the SCI design guides for multi-girder composite highway bridges, P289 and P290. (Published 2006)
SKU: P339
£55.00
This publication provides design guidance on a particular form of composite highway bridge - the  ladder deck form.  Ladder deck form has two main girders, spanning longitudinally, and multiple cross girders spanning between the main girders; the deck slab spans longitudinally between these cross girders.  This particular configuration gives rise to design issues that differ from the multi girder form of construction covered by the SCI design guides for multi-girder composite highway bridges, P289 and P290.
 
Guidance is given on initial design of ladder deck bridges, covering the reasons for choosing this form, the selection of configuration and the initial sizing.  Advice is given on the application of the design rules, according to BS 5400.  Guidance on the design of cross girder connections and some aspects of detailing is also provided.
 
Three short worked examples of design calculations are included.
