Non-Linear Static Analysis of Composite Bridge

Authors(2) :-Tenmey Gehlot, Gajendra Verma

In a few years there are seismic hazard like bhuj earthquake in Gujarat and uttarkashi earthquake in uttrakand. So India focusing to design the earthquake resisting structure therefore static /dynamic non-linear analysis is important to find out the performance level of structure. This paper discusses the pushover analysis of composite bridge structure also composite structures are generally used in construction field due to its economical and efficiency solution. The bridge modelling is analysed by using SAP 2000 vs.16 software. Static non-linear analysis is performed on a model to find out the response of the composite bridge under the action of gravity load.
