He entered the Navy in ; his military career lasted over a decade and included active duty aboard the gunboat Chocorua and the Nyack in the South Pacific, as well as assignments as an instructor and engineer at the Naval Academy. Cooper was also assistant engineer in charge of the construction of the first elevated railroads in New York City. He was one of the five expert engineers selected by the president to determine the Hudson River bridge span. Cooper was also the consulting engineer for the New York Public Library. His bridge-building career extended from his discharge from the Navy until his retirement in

Nikogore Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. So this is my first time i do truss bridge. Students Click Here Join Us! Member since June, From: Posted by Overmod on Sunday, November 11, I will not try to advise on this one other than to mention something I once did that was quite interesting to me.

The whole subject loadnig about 2 — 3 semester long university level courses plus a seminar in AREMA loadings to be covered comprehensively. This loading consists of kip axle loads spaced 5 feet loadnig centers. Member since September, 6, posts. Member since November, 7 posts.

Our community is FREE to join. Figure 1 below illustrates the axle load and spacing breakdown for both HS20 and HS25 design trucks. Posted by Randy Stahl on Friday, November 09, 5: Standard design live load vehicles on corrugated pipe can be mostly broken down into the following three groups: Figure 1, above, also shows the design tandem.

HL loading is representative of the worst case between these two loading scenarios. It is ok or not. Do you think cooper E80 like lane load in design normal bridge? The requirement is to take the 80, axle load, multiply it by 1. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members! The second loaded axle is spaced far enough away that it will have a negligible impact on the pipe design. Tran Anh Member since November, 7 posts. A majority of what will be covered in this article goes into design methodology.

Calculation Live load with Cooper E80 Cover lpading the culvert was about 3 feet. Tran Anh On the deck we have 2 rails, so Cooper E80 will divide 2 each rail. The result of these stationary readings showed the axle loadings of the locomotive to be significantly less than those of the loaded rail cars. My preference would be structural. Close this window and log in. The AREA ratings are plainly longitudinal only no allowance for transverse moments and in that respect ought to be like lane ratings.

Load factors, dynamic load allowances, and other factors are then applied to these loads in the proper load combination s based on the LRFD spec. Overmod Member since September, 6, posts. I suspect these are relatively slight compared to effect of longitudinal loads and would be considered part of the factor of safety rather than explicitly included. For E loading, after the 2 ea. Do you have any experience, easy ways to create time-amplitude graph of high speed railways?

Do you have example for calculate by hand or word? Member since February, 1, posts. Train traffic was light, but mainly an occasional train of loaded iron ore cars.

Login or Register Customer Service. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. We must change cooper E80 to only one load or just push it on the line? For section transverse I have 4 I-beam so I will distribute this live load Cooper E80 on cooper beam like this: Think the general idea is Additional detail will be included in the follow up, so make sure to check back for that second article.

Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.

So what should I do with Cooper E80? I have model 3D, so I will distribute live load on the beam like this: Most 10 Related.

This includes challenging trends on contractors and distributors like new refrigerants, growing automation, complex sensors and monitoring, green initiatives and a technician shortage. We look at these trends and outline actionable insights on how it all can be turned into a competitive advantage and business opportunity.


Calculation Live load with Cooper E80

Cooper E Series Loading. Figure illustrates a unit E1 axle loading. Higher loadings are obtained by multiplying each load by the same constant; wheel spacings do not change. Thus, an E60 loading would show the largest axle loads as 60, lb. Figure Cooper Load Configuration for Bridges 2 To allow an easy comparison of permissible in-service loading or rating over the life of a bridge with the loads used in their original design, and to compare the effect of different engine and car loads for either design or rating, the railroad industry kept the basic Cooper load configuration and used it to represent all bridge loadings and bridge capacity ratings. Equivalent Cooper Loading.
