Preferred solution, K12 – Appendix G - Global analyses - Response
This report describes load modelling, methods and response evaluations performed in the concept development work of a floating bridge over Bjørnafjorden. Permanent, temperature, traffic, tidal, current, wind and wave loads are simulated based on input from the design basis. A thorough screening of selected response variables was performed to select key environmental conditions. Wind responses are simulated using 10 seeds from a set of directions and used to select the worst seed for further load combination.
