Abstract:

Designing problem and theoretical analyses of steel-concrete composite structures are especially emphasized in bridge engineering. Method of modelling composite constructions developed and established by standards had been improved by use of finite element method and modern software. By this paper authors wanted to point out the importance of adequate structure modelling assuming all features of steel-concrete bond, and comparing results of experimental research with results of software calculation based on FEM and calculation based on plane theory approach with certain simplifications. Because of research tests necessities the bridge was loaded with four heavy test vehicles. Results, which are represented graphically and numerically were essence for suggestion of giving advantages to area element discretization of composite section over the other one.
