Re: Railing loads for pedestrianbridge

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can you use some estimated force of the ATV striking a glancing blow to the handrails?  There are loads for vehicles hitting barriers, but the 5' width would seem to restrict the impact speed and angle.

I am looking for information about the loads on the railings.
Bridge is 5 feet wide, so the ATV is a possibility.
Your help will be appreciated.
