Research and Analysis about the Effects of Curved Bar-Tied on Arch Bridge’s Structural Performance
When designing under-supported bar-tied arch bridge, the type of bar-tied usually is straight. But sometimes based on design or the needs of some aspects, curved bar-tied is often used. Taking the main bridge of XinZhang highway bridge as the background, this paper, by using general finite-element software to set up calculation model, studies and analyzes the effects of different types of bar-tied on the arch bridge’s structural performance. Through the analysis, we know that it is not suitable to choose curved bar-tied for under-supported bar-tied arch bridge when designing and constructing.
