Removal and testing of elastomeric bridge bearings. Crowthorne, Berkshire: Transport and Road Research Laboratory, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: A R Price; M A Fenn; Transport and Road Research Laboratory.

The present paper focuses on both existing and new R/C bridge overpasses and aims at a) the design and pilot production of elastomeric (steel-laminated) bearings, specifically by a local Hellenic.

Elastomeric bridge bearings have generally performed satisfactorily under current AASHTO and state DOT materials-test methods and requirements.

Nevertheless, there has been concern that bearings are being unnecessarily rejected because of noncom-pliance with testing requirements that may not be essential or appropriate. Although.

the properties required under Section B, fiSliding Elastomeric Bearings.fl Bearings represented by test specimens passing the above requirements will be approved for use in the structure subject to on-site inspection by the Engineer for visible defects. Elastomeric bearings have had an exemplary performance record over the past 40 years.

Recently, increased testing requirements have been imposed that now make the testing of elastomeric bearings one of the major costs in constructing the supports. Currently, four low-temperature tests are required for elastomeric bearings.

Elastomeric Bearings General Commentary This section is intended to assist in the design and detailing of elastomeric bridge bearings. The information included is intended to permit efficient fabrication, installation, and maintenance of these bearings.

Elastomeric bearings have a low initial cost when compared to other bearing types, and. ond case study, removal and replacement of nonfunc­ tioning bearings can be included as part of bridge rehabilitation or seismic retrofit projects.

Replacement bearings include multirotational disc bearings, fabric pads with polytetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and stainless steel sliding surfaces, elastomeric bearings, and lead-core isolation bearings.

Elastomeric Bearings. Elastomeric bearings are commonly used on small to moderate sized bridges. Elastomeric bearings are either fabricated as plain bearing pads (consisting of elastomer only) or as laminated (steel reinforced) bearings (consisting of alternate layers of steel reinforcement and.

Steel Laminated Elastomeric Bridge Bearings () and Elastomeric Bridge Bearings with External Load Plates () The inspection, sampling and testing of elastomeric bridge bearings follows the procedures outlined in Materials Method No.: NY 23 M (to be referred to as MM23), and are performed on a lot by lot basis.

Elastomeric Bridge Bearings Page 3 of 4 QUALITY CONTROL BY THE MANUFACTURER: The Bearing Manufacturer shall submit a Quality Control Plan for the manufacture of elastomeric bearings to the Materials Division for review and approval.

The Plan shall detail the inspection and testing proposed to insure the elastomeric bearings comply with. An elastomeric bridge bearing is a commonly used modern bridge are several different similar types of bridge bearings that include neoprene bearing pads, neoprene bridge bearings, laminated elastomeric bearings and seismic isolators, which are all generally referred to as bridge bearing pads in the construction industry.

They are designed and manufactured based on standards. Current QA/QC procedures are resulting in good quality elastomeric bearings, and relax- ation of the test requirements appears to carry considerable risk without a corresponding price benefit.

Very Large or Unusual Bearings Discussions with design engineers, manufacturers, and state bridge engineers indicate that very large and unusual. For applications where horizontal displacements exceed +/-2 inches(50mm), sliding elastomeric bearing assemblies may provide an economical solution.

The addition of a low-friction sliding surface allows a standard laminated elastomeric bearing device to accommodate unlimited horizontal displacement without increasing the height of the bearing assembly.

The material found progressively more commonly in bridge bearings since is elastomer. The term elastomer is derived from elastic polymer, referencing the characteristic of the material to return to its original shape after load is removed.

The most common elastomers used for bridge bearings are neoprene and natural rubber, with neoprene being the more commonly used in the United States. And the purpose of bridge bearing is to transfer forces from the superstructure to the substructure or reduce the ground vibration to the superstructure.

Generally, according to its different structures, bridge bearing can be divided into elastomeric bearing, pot bearing, spherical bearing and seismic isolation bearing.
