Abstract
Bridges for pedestrians and bicycles are getting more common. Often, they are seen spanning motorways and railways, to separate walking and cycling traffic from fast going heavy traffic. It is common that the chosen bridge type for this purpose is a truss bridge consisting of rolled steel profiles. When more and more bridges are being planned, the planning process also needs to be rationalised.
The purpose of this BSc thesis work is to make a calculation tool for WSP Bro & Vattenbyggnad so that they can quickly estimate dimensions. Excel is the platform for this program, with the use of macros to implement FEM into Excel. The result of the work is a calculation tool, using FEM, to calculate section forces and compare these forces with... (More)

Excel is the platform for this program, with the use of macros to implement FEM into Excel. The result of the work is a calculation tool, using FEM, to calculate section forces and compare these forces with Eurocode’s rules for dimensioning and to provide easily understandable results in terms of utilisation ratio and quantity of steel needed for the bridge. This program should be suitable to be used by a bridge constructor for estimation of dimensions for this type of bridge. (Less)
