behaviour and design of rocker bearings in bridge

Characterisation of the behaviour of steel bridge

To assess older bridge vulnerability an understanding of the cyclic behavior of their components such as steel bolster and rocker bearings is needed A theoretical analysis is conducted to understand steel bearing behavior and their potential limit states which also serves to

Seismic fragility of a highway bridge in Quebec

ABSTRACT This paper presents fragility curves for the evaluation of a highway bridge retrofitted with seismic isolator devices The object of this study is the Chemin des Dalles bridge over Highway 55 located in Trois-Rivires in Quebec Canada A series of synthetic ground motions time histories compatible with eastern Canada are used to capture the uncertainties related to the hazard

Sintered Bearings

2016-8-22It is important to choose your lubricant based on its viscosity compatibility with plastic thermal behaviour and start-up wear You will find that sintered or self-lubricating bearings are used in many applications including the likes of electric motors for cars fans and cooking equipment power tools and a variety of appliances

Functions and Types of Bearings for Contemporary

Bearings are ancillary bridge components that facilitate the transfer of traffic actions permanent actions and other environmental actions from the bridge deck down to the substructure and ultimately to the ground To fulfill this function effectively bearings must be able to accommodate all anticipated service movements (rotations and translations) while also restraining extraordinary

Bearings in bridges

A rocker bearing is a type of expansion bearing that comes in a great variety It typically consists of a pin at the top that facilitates rotations and a curved surface at the bottom that accommodates the translational movements Rocker and pin bearings are primarily used in steel bridges 16
