An Experimental Study of Box Type Bridge with Different Height and Width for the IRC Loadings


Box type bridge designing process starts with the hydraulic calculation for a particular site of crossing. In this process catchment area along with its critical length of the river and fall in level is marked on the toposheet available in 1:50000 scale for a region. After getting the required data design discharge is calculated by using different methods given in IRC: SP: 13-2004 (Guidelines for the Design of Small Bridges and Culverts) and then finally span arrangement is decided for the required site of crossing. Once the span is decided then design of structure takes place. Box Type Bridge is a monolithic structure generally used when the safe bearing capacity of the soil is ascertained to be very less. Different structural member act as whole to resist the characteristic load for which it is designed.
