I'm afraid I was imprecise. By "design" I don't mean detail design of the bearing per se. But it is required to give the manufacturer some guidelines as to what you want. Bearing footprint, skew of bridge and width of seat are some examples of those. But there are also some "rules of thumb" according to my understanding, that allow you to determine slide trajectories for guided bearings, translational fixity, etc. That is what I really need guidance concerning. -----Original Message----- From: Roger Turk [SMTP:73527.1356(--nospam--at)compuserve.com] Sent: Friday, April 10, 1998 12:59 PM To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Subject: POT Bearings for Steel B Bill, POT bearings are generally proprietary and capacities are based on the way they are manufactured, taking into consideration confinement of the elastomeric material, thickness, etc. I would select and specify one or several manufacturers as acceptable. A major consideration is the size of the bearing and skew of the bridge which will determine the minimum width of your pier/abutment seat. A.
