Bridges

(1) Unless otherwise specified, where the favourable and unfavourable parts of actions due to self-weight of structural elements need to be considered as individual actions for the verification of static equilibrium, they should be associated with yG,inf = [0,95] and yG?sup = [1,05 respectively.

These factors may be adjusted for specific cases depending on the level of the quality assurance during execution (see 2.2 (5)-b) of ENV 1991-1).

(2) The values for yG,inf and yG,sup in 4.1.3 (1) may also be used for the verification of systems providing stabilizing actions.
