Steel, concrete and composite bridges - Part 5: Code of practice for the design of composite bridges
Recommendations for the design of composite bridges.
This British Standard, a part of the BS 5400 series, gives recommendations for the design of composite bridges that use rolled or fabricated steel sections, cased or uncased, and filler beam systems.
Consideration is given to simply supported and continuous composite beams, composite columns and to the special problems of composite box beams.
The recommendations for the design of the concrete element cover normal and lightweight aggregate, cast in situ and precast concrete. Recommendations are also made in respect of prestressing and the use of permanent formwork designed to act compositely with in situ concrete.
