For PA walls tested with dead load
, the primary damage occurred along the sill plate.
For chosen span L and sag in the middle of span under dead load
bearing cable during its installation will adopt the entire dead load
as an absolutely flexible cable, and after the completion of bridge erection it will behave as "rigid" cable ([E.
In addition, the frame is subjected to the dead load
of roofing [g.
The design scheme of a classical suspension bridge affected both by the dead load
g and the live load p is shown in Fig.
Fastener spacings given in Table 3 were derived by assuming deck live and dead loads
of 40 and 10 psf, respectively.
Figs 13 and 14 show the data about variation of normal stress at A and C of the web under dead load
along the half bridge after bottom slab cracking.
An assumption that treats this load as a dead load
is satisfactory for the calculation of the critical load, however, the postbuckling behavior is significantly different [5, 6] and it is not widely researched.
The scale provides for complete mass counterbalancing of the dead load
of the conveyor permitting the load sensor to react only to the net material load.
The flexural deflection of a trussed pedestrian bridge subjected to dead load
and live load of 3924 N/[m.
Reducing dead load
on the bridge by 240 metric tons (265 tons), the application of this technology doubled the load rating to a level higher than the original design and allowed weight restrictions to be removed, while saving $1.
The lightweight steel superstructure allowed for rapid, highline erection and lowered dead load
demands on the arch for an efficient, economical design.
