Bridge Bearings & Stability

Abstract

A technical solution to the problem of unavoidable movements in bridge structures is the use of Bridge Bearings & Stability. Bridge bearings are small integral parts of the entire bridge structure serving several purposes, such as connection, transfer of forces, allowing movements, force damping etc. However, bridge bearings could create more problems for the bridge structure than it solves if not properly understood, especially when it receives less attention than it deserves. Technical and practical issues, such as selection of the right bearing type for use, merits and demerits of different bearing types, maintenance and monitoring, replacement, life cycle cost etc. are all imperative to ensure that bearings satisfy their purpose.

Bridge Bearings & Stability

Conclusion

This paper focus on importance of bearing and details about the types of bearing. We have studied mainly four types of bearing as they are having unique characteristics and applications in mechanical field. Thrust bearing is not in common use, but it is very useful mainly in heavy duty applications. The settled and portable heading set in an average multi traverse essentially upheld extension may get harmed because of over the top seismic powers transmitted from the superstructures amid seismic excitations. The seismic reactions of the scaffold are researched to inspect the impacts of the conceivable bearing harm, and the followings conclusions are drawn.
