Øresund Bridge Connecting Sweden And Denmark

1 post in this topic

Assalam-o-alaikum,

Dear Colleagues!

The Øresund bridge is an engineering marvel that connects the Danish capital of Copenhagen to the Swedish city of Malmö.

A cable-stayed bridge runs nearly 8 km (5 miles) to an artificial island where it transitions into a tunnel that runs another 4 km (2.5 miles). The award-winning double-track railway and motorway opened on July 1, 2000.

For more details refer to the following link:

      Dear All, 
      I have designed the bridge between two building. Fixed at one end and roller at the other. The bridge at the roller end, rests on a concrete ledge. I have provided the expansion joint based on the formulation of ASCE for building separation. I have certain queries on it :
      1- Is building separation formulation is appropriate to provide expansion/moment joint in my case?
      2- I am trying to allow the movement through slotted holes in base plate. If my bridge required expansion is 300mm through formulation indicated in Point-1 above, should the slotted hole be twice of it i.e.  2x300mm = 600mm  
       
      I am still unsure as to what size the slotted hole should be ? and what governs the expansion joint of bridge over the ledge end. 
      I am relatively new to bridges. any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Can some body please give reference regarding torsional design of post-tensioned bridge girders? I have searched through AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specs but could not find a valid reference.
