Eurocode 1. Actions on structures. Traffic loads on bridges

Status : Current   Published : October 2003



This European Standard, BS EN 1991-2 defines imposed loads (models and representative values) associated with road traffic, pedestrian actions and rail traffic which include, when relevant, dynamic effects and centrifugal, braking and acceleration actions and actions for accidental design situations. Imposed loads defined in this standard are intended to be used for the design of new bridges, including piers, abutments, upstand walls, wing walls and flank walls etc., and their foundations. The load models and values given in this standard should be used for the design of retaining walls adjacent to roads and railway lines.

BS EN 1991-2:2003 supersedes DD ENV 1991-3:2000, which is withdrawn.

NotesThis standard is the subject of transitional arrangements agreed under a European Commission mandate. In order to allow for any changes in national regulations, the Commission in consultation with Member States has agreed a transition period for the co-existence of EN 1991-2 and corresponding national standards. At the end of this coexistence period BS 5400-1:1988 and BS 5400-2 will be withdrawn.
