High Strain Dynamic Testing • High Strain Dynamic Testing encompasses Dynamic Pile Monitoring and Dynamic Load Testing. Both are covered by ASTM D • Pile Driving Monitoring consists of using a PDA to perform real time evaluation of Case Method capacity, energy transfer, driving stresses and pile integrity for every blow. bridge rail selection and design, and for design of the connection to an existing bridge. An existing bridge rail on a highway with a posted speed of 30 miles per hour or less may remain in place if it is not located on a bridge over a National Highway System (NHS) highway. When Type 7 bridge rail is present on a bridge over an NHS highway with File Size: 2MB.

The impact creates a force 28 times gravity!! Impact Force from a Falling Object. The dynamic energy in a falling object at the impact moment when it hits the ground can be calculated as. E = F weight h = m a g h (4) where. F weight = force due to gravity - or weight (N, lb f) a g = acceleration of gravity ( m/s 2, ft/s 2). FINAL REPORT STRUCTURAL LOAD TESTING AND FLEXURE ANALYSIS OF THE ROUTE BRIDGE IN LOUISA COUNTY, VIRGINIA was used to perform static and dynamic tests on the bridge, and the truck was oriented in three test lanes.

Optional) full-scale crash testing for acceptance of bridge guardrail systems. Physical performance tests became mandated in the current AASHTO bridge design code. Loads to be used in analytical development of new bridge guardrails system are also provided for configuring systems so as to have the potential of surviving full-scale crash tests.

The need for a bridge guardrail pre-testing proce dure exists because federal-level crash testing of guardrails has certain drawbacks, the principal one being expense. One must configure full. An exploratory test under pendulum impact load testing showed the hanger and its connection system performed with no major damage.

The main bridge girder sustained structural damage, but extreme handling methods needed to move the specimen into the load position and a reduction in its depth prior to testing may have damaged the girder and contributed to that outcome being suspect.

The behavior of a guardrail system during an impact is a very complex event, requiring extensive analysis. One important aspect of this event is the post-soil interaction.

The dynamic properties of this interaction are of great theoretical and practical importance in understanding how posts behave in Size: 2MB.

Dynamic Testing of Highway Bridges­ A Review B. BAKHT AND s. PINJARKAR A review is presented of the recent technical literature in the English language dealing with bridge dynamics in general and dynamic testing of highway bridges in particular.

It is shown that several definitions have been used for the impact factor and thus. assignment by the Banverket, the authority responsible for rail traffic in Sweden. The dynamic behaviour of the railway bridge is evaluated, using the finite element program LUSAS.

The train crosses the bridge at constant speed and is represented by moving axle forces. Thus, no interaction between vehicle-bridge and no track irregularities areFile Size: 3MB. Assessment of a concrete arch bridge using static and dynamic load tests89 under the test load. Then, the cubic smoothing spline is completely defined for the selected initial data.

In the third step, the sums of the squares of the difference between the measured and calculated slope values using the defined cubic spline function is minimized. Midrails, screens, mesh, and other intermediate members must be capable of withstanding at least pounds of force applied in any direction at any point along the midrail or other member.

Impact Factor. Vehicular Live loads are multiplied with an Impact Factor to accommodate this dynamic effect in the design of bridges. The dynamic loads for moving vehicles are considered Impact in bridge engineering because of the relatively short duration.

parentheses is the dynamic amplification–the factor by which a load is amplified when suddenly imposed. Since the displacement and load are proportional the effective force carried by the beam during impact is the product of the dynamic amplification and the weight, W.

Impact Load Factors for Static Analysis Often a designer has a mass, with a known velocity, hitting an object and thereby causing a suddenly applied impact load. Rather than conduct a dynamic analysis an amplified static analysis is used, at least for the preliminary design.

In a static stress analysis the static force (or weight of the mass) must. rope guardrail systems can be found in section (8) of the construction regulations. Loads Guardrails must be capable of resisting the following loads.
