Abstract:
There are a number of pitfalls from specification to the final installation of bridge bearings into a structure. The majority of the problems originate from a lack of attention to fundamental practical considerations. This paper is particularly directed to engineers involved in the specification, approval and installation of mechanical bridge bearings. A number of important aspects of bridge bearing design, manufacture and quality control are highlighted.
