Tied Arch Bridge, Continuous Rigid Frame Bridge


The dynamic response of a pre-stressed bowstring composite concrete type arch bridge under seismic loading is investigated by using finite element model in ANSYS software. The bridge taken as New Kozhencherry Bridge in Kerala, India was selected for the study. The bridge is a proposed work of the Public Works Department, Kerala. This paper mainly deals with static analysis and seismic analysis and also fatigue analysis of the bridge and comparison of the results with reinforced concrete and composite added concrete. The study presented in this paper is a possible suggestion for design improvements to the structure, under consideration of fatigue life of the bride due to vehicle load.
