Damage equivalent stresses for fatigue verification

_ P 101 This Appendix gives a simplified procedure to calculate the damage equivalent stresses for fatigue OQ verification of superstructures of road and railway concrete bridges on the basis of fatigue load models given in ENV 1991-3. Any load model given in ENV 1991-3 may be used provided that appropriate data for X values are available. P 101 The values given in this subclause are applicable only to the factored fatigue load model 3 according to For calculation of the damage equivalent...

Basis of design

2.2.1 Limit states and design situations 0 Replacement of Application Rule 4 by 104 Ultimate limit states which may require consideration include - loss of equilibrium of the structure or any part of it, considered as a rigid body. - failure by excessive deformation, rupture, or loss of stability of the structure or any part of it, including supports and foundations. - failure caused by fatigue. See 4.2, 4.3. 2.2.2.2 Characteristic values of actions 106 During execution design values of loads...
