RE: Golf Course Bridge

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Of course it doesn't apply to road or highway bridges. But as i told you before, the incumbent's case is not of a bridge in true sense. Its to be designed for a light cart, as i understand. So, ANSI recommendation can be followed because its meant for vehicular drive ways, ramps, parking or any other similar type of structure. The structure in question falls, in my opinion, in the category of structures for which this ANSI recommendation is for. Of course, gentlemen should also consider an impact load at 25% of live load, in addition to factoring(x 1.7) it for ultimate strength. This should meet the requirement of a safe & economical design.

But those are not bridges.
