Paper Title:
Study the Design and Analysis of Al-Shuhadah Bridge and Analysis by Using Plaxis Program of Finite Elements
  Abstract

This paper is a studying on the Al-Shuhadah Bridge lies in the Muthanna province south of Iraq, including the soil investigation taken from the project and analysis for the designed bridge firstly manually by using equations 1 and 2 according to the data provided, secondly by using three dimensional Plaxis program of finite elements. The settlement calculated by the above two ways is nearly similar and considered reasonable values compared with the allowable settlement according to Skempton and McDonald (1956) limitations for maximum settlement and maximum angular distortion. The bearing capacity of the bridge also calculated by using equation 3 and the value is larger than the applied load due to the effect of truck loading, while the study found that the bridge is not suitable to carry the dynamic loads due to the effect of train action; therefore, this bridge is used for the highway only and can success for this purpose.
