Structural Analysis of Historic Masonry Arch Bridges: Case Study of Clemente Bridge on Savio River

Abstract:

Article Preview

The Clemente Bridge is a multi-span masonry arch bridge built during the 18th century on Savio River in Cesena. The aim of this paper is to assess its static capacity under live loads prescribed by Italian Standards in force. The analysis is performed employing RING 3.0, a computational tool based on Limit State Analysis. This method allows to individuate the minimum adequacy factor, that is the multiplier on vehicle loads required to cause collapse. In this way, a first assessment on the bridge safety can be obtained.
