Title: Standardization of Bridge Bearing: A Report on German Standards and a Proposal for an International Standard
Author(s): H. Eggert
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 543-550
Keywords: bridge bearings; deformation; installing; loads (forces); plastics, polymers, and resins; quality control; safety; standards; structural design; General
Abstract:Since some national standards on bridge bearings have been issued and a certain level of knowledge seems to have consolidated, the time has come to prepare an ISO Standard. The most important elements that should be part of such an ISO Standard are listed. Contradictions between existing national standards should be clarified and eliminated. Outlived technology should not be part of an international standard while national standards still may specify such bearings for local reasons.
