Abstract:

Knowing the structural capacity of existing bridges is essential for road administrations. This is equally true for flexible culverts as for any other type of bridge. For older structures all necessary data for a full detailed verification of the structural capacity may not be in place. In some instances the missing data may be possible to retrieve by different measurement and testing procedures in the field and in laboratory environment. However, for most of the structures one need to rely on database information when estimating the structural capacity. In this paper the procedures for estimating the structural capacity of existing flexible culverts specific for Swedish conditions is described along with some technical aspects important for the structural capacity.
