The subject of thesis is static analysis and design of a timber bridge, with a structure that is designed for road transport. In the thesis we set out the main actions on the bridge and we made static and modal analysis with the computer program Sofistik. We also designed load-bearing elements and their connections. The design has been done in accordance with the European standard Eurocode, where the National Annex has been taken into consideration. The bridge which we have designed does not exist and we have conceived the load-bearing structure on the basis of already existing similar timber bridges. Location of the bridge was selected on the main road in the village Luče, where it crosses the river Savinja.
Span of the bridge is 32 m and its width is 7 m. The primary load-bearing structure of the bridge consists of two struts on both sides of the bridge which supports steel HEB beam through vertical hangers. On top of the steel beam, which is in the middle of the span, takes place eight longitudinal timber beams, bearing timber deck. Timber deck is made of a wooden, upright facing planks that are positioned perpendicular to the longitudinal beams and are connected with dowels. Both struts are linked with steel cables and therefore there are only vertical reactions in supports. Struts and longitudinal beams are rectangular and made of glued laminated timber GL-36H, the planks are of timber D60.
