Description

This technical guide is mainly intended for bridge designers. The contents should enable them to design laminated elastomeric bearings with a view to using them on bridges, viaducts and similar structures.

The documents principally includes the following:

* A brief description of the various types of laminated elastomeric bearings and any specific related equipment,

* The main regulations and standards,

* The design criteria based on draft regulations drawn up by the CEN (European Committee for Standardization),

* The principle of controls for the CE marking,

* A design methodology for a bridge project with application examples.

Lastly, it is supplemented by a series of appendixes on the design of this type of bearing in seismic zones, on the durability of laminated elastomeric bearings with sliding planes and examples of clauses to be included in performance specifications.
