Example text

The former equations rely on an initial criteria based on the ratio of the net tension and the net shear areas. On the other hand, the recent provisions provide a generalized equation independent of the ratio of the net tension and shear areas. 2), Fu = Tensile strength of the plate (ksi). The load rating results for tensile resistance obtained by using both the 2009 and the 2014 provisions are given in Table 2. As shown in this table, there is no change in the yielding capacity results. However, the capacity increases for the right diagonal member while the block shear capacity of the vertical member decreases using the equation given in the 2014 provisions.

However, probabilistic analyses were not used to derive the representative values of all types of actions: According to Annex C of EC0 [1], deterministic methods have primarily been used in the first generation of the Eurocodes when relevant statistical data was lacking. For these actions, the load models were derived on the basis of historical events and subjective assumptions regarding extreme scenarios, instead of following a probabilistic approach. Regarding traffic loads on bridges, the derivation of vertical load models 1 and 2 for global and local verifications, respectively, was based on a probabilistic analysis of traffic data from a Weigh-in-Motion station in Auxerre, France.
