Parametric analysis of wind action on slab bridge deck
AbstractIn this paper, the parametric analysis of wind action on the bridge deck is conducted. Wind force acting on the bridge deck is calculated varying upon the following parameters: wind area, terrain category, road restraint system and height of the deck above ground. The presented results show the possibility of great changes in wind force due to changes of the listed parameters. Since a similar slab bridge deck is often used in different locations in Croatia, it is important to bear in mind when designing standardised bridges the fact that the wind load on bridges in different locations can change several times.
