[Michael A Ritter; Forest Products Laboratory (U.S.);]. these railings, 24 are for concrete bridge decks and 1 is for a wood deck. For wood bridges to compete with other bridges in the future, a range of crash-tested bridge railings for different wood bridge types will be required.

Because of this need, national emphasis was placed on developing a hmited number of crash-tested railings for wood Size: 3MB.

oping crashworthy railings for timber bridge decks. For timber to be a viable material in the construction of bridges, addi­ tional vehicular railing systems must be developed and crash tested for timber bridge decks. Of the many railing systems that have been crash tested successfully, only one involved a bridge railing for a timber bridge Size: 3MB.

Ritter, Ronald K. Faller, Paula D. Hilbrich Lee, Barry Thomas Rosson, and. August25 additional bridge rails had been successfully crash tested in accordance with the requirements of AASHTO’s Guide Specifications for Bridge Railingsand also approved by FHWA for use in federal aid projects (10).

Of these crash-tested railings, 46 were used on concrete bridge decks, and only one was used on a wood deck (11). FHWA (9). By Augusttwenty-five additional bridge rails had been successfully crash tested in accordance with the requirements of the AASHTO Guide Specifications and also approved by the FHWA for use on Federal-aid projects (10).

Of these crash-tested railings, forty-six were for concrete bridge decks and only one was for a wood deck ( Three low-height, curb-type timber bridge railings, in. high square and rectangular curbs and a in. high trapezoidal curb, were developed for longirudinal timber bridge decks located on very low-volume roads.

The crash test program included 34 developmental tests and four full-scale vehicle crash tests.

There have been several proposals for a service-level approach to railing design that would vary requirements for structures based on the functional classification of the roadway, bridge ge­ ometry, and the type, speed, and volume of Size: 2MB.25 additional bridge rails had been successfully crash tested in accordance with the requirements of the AASHTO Guide Specifica-tions and also approved by FHWA for use on federal-aid projects (8).

The standard bridge rail will be the “Oregon Two-Tube” rail with curb, with PL-2 rating. The concrete barrier or some other crash-tested rail shape may be desirable in some circumstances.

Do not use railings other than the Oregon Two-Tube unless approved by the chief bridge engineer. Bridge rail must comply with NCHRP test level 2 or 3. Wood laminations span perpendicular to the flow of traffic. TNL decks are more common than LNL decks since they are less susceptible to delamination.

Unlike an LNL deck, the TNL deck requires support from girders or stringers. Figure illustrates the difference between LNL and TNL decks. Ontario Wood Bridge Reference Guide 7 Figure wood design, construction, wood properties & engineered properties.

Most c onsist of a series of longitudinal beams supported by piers and abutments. Typically spans can range from 10 to 30 ft [3 to 9 m] depending on the beam type. Most of the bridges of this type on Delaware’s highway system were built prior to the ’s.5/5(1). For 3R projects, low volume roadways are defined as current ADT of less than Design Speed (low volume roadways) Horizontal Alignment (low volume roadways) Vertical Alignment (low volume roadways) Superelevation (low volume roadways) Grades (low volume roadways) Deficient Bridge Rails (low volume roadways).
