1. Externally applied longitudinal forces
• Tractive effort caused through acceleration of driving wheels
• Braking effort due to application of brakes to the wheels
• Frictional resistance offered by free bearings due to change of
temperature, shrinkage and creep
Force due to braking effort
Braking effort is invariably greater than the tractive effort so taken as a design longitudinal
force. It is computed as follows.
• For single or two lane bridge, braking loads taken as 20%of the first
train load and 10% of the loads of succeeding trains.
• For multilane bridge, braking load is taken as in (a) for the first two
lanes and 5% of the loads on the other lanes.
• The force due to braking effort shall be assumed to act 1.2m above
the roadway.

Wind load = Wind load on the structure
+ Wind load on the live load
FT = PZ × A × G × CD
FL = 0.25 FT for beam type bridge
= 0.5 FT for truss type bridge
FT - Wind load in transverse direction
FL - Wind load in longitudinal direction of bridge
PZ - Design wind pressure
A - Exposed area of structure / live load to wind
G - Gust factor ; G = 2 for 150 m span
CD - Drag coefficient CD ≥ 1.3 depending upon b/d ratio and type of superstructure
Wind load on live load = Length of live load × 3m × FT
In the case of live load G is taken equal to 1.2m and point of application of wind load is 1.5 m.
Described method of wind load calculation is valid for bridges of
span upto150m and height of pier upto 100m
WIND LOAD
Pressure of water current P = 52 KV2 [kg/m2]
Where K- shape factor of the pier ( k= 0.5 -1.5)
V- velocity of the water current at the point, where
pressure intensity is to be calculated. [m/sec]
Intensity of pressure due to water current depends on
• Direction of current
• Velocity of water current
• Shape factor of the pier
• Maximum scouring depth
200 deviation of river course shall be considered in the calculation of the
pressure due to water current
HORIZONTAL FORCES
DUE TO WATER CURRENT
Horizontal forces due to water current =
Pressure of water current X Area of structure exposed to water

Seismic Force
Method of computation of Seismic Force
• Elastic Seismic Acceleration Method
In this method static analysis is made and seismic force is obtained for
acceleration corresponding to the fundamental mode of vibration.
• Elastic Response Spectrum Method
In this method dynamic analysis is made to first and higher modes of
vibration and forces are obtained for each mode by using of response
spectrum.
In elastic seismic acceleration method force due to
earthquake is calculated as follows.
Feq = Ah × (Dead load + Partial Live load)
where,
Ah = Z/2 × I/R × Sa/g
Bridges need not be checked for seismic effects
Bridges need special investigation for seismic effects

IRC 6 define four cases separately i.e. foundation, stability, limit state of
strength and limit state of serviceability to be considered in Limit State
Design Method. In each cases, there are further three combinations of loads
to be considered.
 Three combinations of limit state of strength and stability are
• Basic combination
• Seismic combination
• Accidental combination
 These combinations are given separately for serviceability check and
foundation design.
 Partial safety factors for loads for different combinations and for different
works are not similar. They are chosen as specified in code
 Refer IRC 6 – 2010, Table 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 for combination of loads

• HS loading
It consists of truck with semi-trailer or the corresponding lane
loading. Lane load consists of a uniform load per unit length of
traffic lane combined with a concentrated load (one concentrate
load for simply supported span and two concentrated load in case of
continuous span).
HS loading may be HS 20-44 and HS 15-44.
It consists of a two-axle truck or the corresponding lane load. Lane
load consists of a uniform load per unit length of traffic lane
combined with a single concentrated load (two concentrated load in
case of continuous span).
H loading may be H 20-44 and H 15-44.
