Traffic data recently obtained from a number of representative European sites are used to re-calibrate the codified main load model of the European bridge loading code, Eurocode 1 Part 3. A wide range of real and virtual bridge forms were chosen for the study. Simulations were performed using free-flowing and jammed traffic. Load effects generated were determined and statistical extrapolations were performed, where appropriate, to determine characteristic values for the load effects. Some of the assumptions used in the derivation of the original loading model were reassessed.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||European Communities||Copyright (published version):||1998||Keywords:||Traffic loads;Load effect;Bridges;Design code;Eurocode;Extrapolation||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||E.J.
