© Canadian Standards Association Automatic sequence control

For non-emergency automatic sequence control, it shall be possible for the operator to initiate each interlocked function in sequence by one movement of a push button or selector switch.

Note: The steps in such a sequence may include

(a) actuate traffic signals;

(b) actuate approach gates;

(c) actuate exit gates;

(d) actuate barriers or retarders;

(e) pull span locks;

(f) release brakes;

(g) open span by manually accelerating and decelerating span-driving motors; and

(h) set brakes.

For emergency control, actions by the operator can include operation of bypass switches, selection of the emergency mode of span operation, and skew correction.

Span motor controls shall include all components needed to provide motor protection against abnormal conditions, automatic controlled acceleration and deceleration, modulated speed control (where applicable) (e.g., tower drives without power-synchronizing motors) and four-quadrant control to accommodate overhauling loads involving negative torque or regenerative braking loads, and any other feature needed to ensure satisfactory performance following a single movement of the initiating control switch.

Motor and machinery brake types, and control arrangements, shall be selected so as to ensure time-sequenced brake application under all conditions.

Two modes of stopping span movement shall be provided for variable-speed motor controls, as follows:

(a) normal stop, with controlled electrical deceleration followed by brake application; and

(b) immediate power cut-off and application of brakes initiated by an emergency stop button.

Limit switch, resolver, or encoder actions shall initiate deceleration before the nearly open and nearly closed span positions are reached and the control system shall be designed to accomplish a reduction to slow speed when those positions are passed. Speed limit switches or some other means shall be provided to detect span speed at the nearly open and nearly closed positions. If the span speed is within the normal limit of the span, movement shall continue to completion; if not, power shall be cut off, brakes shall be applied, and a reset operation of the overspeed circuit shall be required before span movement can be resumed. During final seating, the motor torque shall be reduced and the brakes shall remain in released position until the span is tightly seated, after which the brakes shall set and the motors shall be disconnected.

Tower-drive lift bridges arranged for automatic sequence control shall have two independent skew limit switches, resolvers, or encoders connected in series for each span mode of operation.

13.10.19 Speed control for span-driving motors

Multi-speed (stepped) motor controls shall provide at least six steps of acceleration. These steps shall be such that (a) the motor torque will differ as little as practicable from the average torque required for uniform acceleration from zero speed to full speed; and (b) the bridge shall accelerate and decelerate smoothly (i) under the lowest friction conditions in the absence of wind or other extraneous unbalanced loads; and

(ii) when the motors are carrying their maximum loads.

Separate resistors shall be provided for each motor.

Variable-speed (stepless) drives shall provide smooth variable-speed control with a minimum speed range of 10 to 1, independent acceleration and deceleration ramps field adjustable from 2 to 20 s minimum, speed regulation of ±1.5% (or better), and motor slip. Variable-speed motor controls shall also provide four-quadrant control to accommodate overhauling loads, provide dynamic braking, and enable compatibility with programmable controllers.

Any company undertaking welded fabrication in accordance with this Section shall be certified to Division 1 or 2 of CSA W47.2. Web to flange fillet welds

Where practicable, web to flange fillet welds shall be made continuously by mechanized or automatic welding. Welds may be repaired using either a semi-automatic or manual process, but the repaired weld shall blend smoothly with the adjacent welds.

17.25.5 Bolted construction Assembly

When assembled, all joint surfaces, including those adjacent to bolt heads, nuts, and washers, shall be free from loose scale, burrs, dirt, and foreign material that would prevent the solid seating of the parts. Installation of bolts

Only pretensioned ASTM A325 bolts shall be used in slip-critical joints. Turn-of-nut tightening

After the holes in a joint are aligned, a sufficient number of bolts shall be placed and brought to a snugtight condition to ensure that the parts of the joint are brought into full contact with each other.

Following the initial snugging operation, bolts shall be placed in any remaining open holes and brought to snug-tightness. Re-snugging can be necessary in large joints. Two washers are to be used, one under head face and one under nut face.

When all bolts are snug-tight, each bolt in the joint shall be further tightened by the applicable amount of relative rotation specified in Table 17.11 with tightening progressing systematically from the most rigid part of the joint to its free edges. During this operation, there shall be no rotation of the part not turned by the wrench unless the bolt and nut are match-marked to enable the amount of relative rotation to be determined.

16.8 Concrete beams and slabs

16.8.1 General

Except as specified in this Section, the resistance and deformations of concrete beams, slabs, and deck slabs reinforced with FRP tendons, bars, or grids, corresponding to the various limit states, shall be calculated in accordance with Section 8.

The resistance at ULS for beams and slabs with FRP bars or grids in multiple layers shall be calculated by taking account of the linear variation of strain through the depth of the member, ensuring that the stresses in the reinforcement are consistent with Clause 16.8.3.

The maximum compressive concrete strains in beams and slabs due to factored loads shall not exceed the limiting strain specified in Section 8.

Internally restrained deck slabs shall be designed in accordance with Clause 16.8.8.

16.8.2 Deformability and minimum reinforcement Design for deformability

For concrete components reinforced with FRP bars or grids, the overall performance factor, J, shall be at least 4.0 for rectangular sections and 6.0 for T-sections, with J calculated as follows:


= y y

ult ult c c


Mult = ultimate moment capacity of the section
[f079]ult = curvature at Mult
Mc = moment corresponding to a maximum compressive concrete strain in the section of 0.001 [f079]

c = curvature at Mc Minimum flexural resistance

The factored resistance, Mr, shall be at least 50% greater than the cracking moment, Mcr, as specified in Clause This requirement may be waived if the factored resistance, Mr, is at least 50% greater than the factored moment, Mf. If the ULS design of the section is governed by FRP rupture, Mr shall be greater than 1.5Mf.

The principles for calculating Mcr and Mr shall be consistent with those specified in Clause 8.8, except that stresses in FRP bars at different levels, if present, shall be calculated by assuming a linear distribution. Crack-control reinforcement

When the maximum tensile strain in FRP reinforcement under full service loads exceeds 0.0015, cross-sections of the component in maximum positive and negative moment regions shall be proportioned in such a way that the crack width does not exceed 0.5 mm for members subject to aggressive environments and 0.7 mm for other members, with the crack width calculated as follows:

w f E h
h k d s



2 2 /






b c

The value of kb shall be determined experimentally, but in the absence of test data may be taken as 0.8 for sand-coated and 1.0 for deformed FRP bars. In calculating dc, the clear cover shall not be taken greater than 50 mm.
