Applications of Modified Equivalent Load Method in the Possibility of the Transportation of Large Equipment
When the transport vehicles of large equipment pass through bridges, the main check-calculation coefficients affecting the bridge bearing capacity are the load transverse distribution coefficients, impact coefficient and load safety coefficient. Base on these affecting factors, this paper put forward a discriminant for modified equivalent load method. The triangle influencing line method is applied in measuring the equivalent load of commonly used vehicle plates for transportation of large equipment. Finally this seeks to verify and modify the accuracy and convenience of equivalent load discriminative method through engineering examples and thus suggests a concise and practical method for engineers and technicians： to conduct feasible study for bridge transportation for large scale equipments.
