RE: Equestrian bridge loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
American Society of Agricultural Engineers publishes an engineering
practice ASAE EP378.3 Floor and Suspended Loads on Agricultural
Structures Due to Use.

For Horses the recommended design load for Solid Floor and Floor support
= 100 psf.  The individual "slats" should also be designed for a
concentrated load of 250 lbs/ft.

Subject: Equestrian bridge loads

I am developing preliminary design of a "pedestrian bridge" which is
also intended to carry equestrian loads. How are equestrian loadings
typically developed?
