Analysis and Design of Railway Bridges brings together the analytical tools and design methods necessary to accurately interpret the complex design requirements in the selection process and construction of robust railway bridges. When designing railway bridges, design engineers must face a number of unique structural challenges such as: dead load of the structure, live loads from the carried, frequency of traffic, and dynamic components of the traffic such as impact, centrifugal, lateral, and longitudinal forces. This means the use of complex modeling tools for the selection of proper design criteria. This reference provides a clear and rigorous exposition of the various codes which govern design including: American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, American Railroad Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association, Federal Highway Administration and the Eurocode for dynamic factor, dynamic loading and load combinations, bridge parameters, modelling of excitation and dynamic behaviour, and verification for fatigue. Explains codes including: American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, American Railroad Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association, Federal Highway Administration, and the Eurocode Addresses the unique aspects of railway bridge modeling such as: bridge and train modeling techniques, substructure details, structural steel details, prestressed concrete details, and bridge railing and approach rail details Includes design and analysis methods and calculations as well as applications and solved examples Provides the analytical tools and design methods necessary to interpret complex design requirements
