Bridge Checks

Extension Module for the 3D FEM Calculation

This module performs checks for beam structures, shell structures and design objects as defined in EN 1991-2 and EN 1992-2 as well as DIN Technical Reports 101 and 102. Elements with no prestress as well as prestressed elements with subsequent bond, without bond, with external prestressing and in mixed construction can be analyzed.

  • Consideration of any stresses and loading
  • Special preparation of the load model LM 1
  • Automatic combination of actions
    • Construction and final states for all action combinations
    • Optionally user-defined actions
  • Checks at the ultimate limit state
    • Minimum reinforcement for ensuring robustness
    • Bending with or without longitudinal force or longit. force alone
    • Lateral force under consideration of minimum reinforcement
    • Pure torsion and torsion with lateral force
    • Check of the shear joint
    • Design of composite sections
  • Checks against fatigue
    • Bending reinforcement and prestressing steel
    • Shear and torsional reinforcement
    • Concrete under logitudinal compressive stress
    • Concrete compressive struts under lateral force and torsion
  • Checks at the serviceability limit state
    • Minimum reinforcement for the crack width limitation
    • Limiting the crack width through direct calculation
    • Check of the decompression- Limiting the concrete compressive stress
    • Limiting the reinforced concrete stresses
    • Limiting the prestressing steel stresses
    • Check of the diagonal principal tensile stresses
