Abstract

Mining subsidence causes ground movements which are imposed on any structure in the area of influence. Bridges are particularly susceptible to subsidence, which frequently causes damage and occasionally collapse. Special bridge designs have been developed to cater for mining subsidence. This paper provides details of the performance of such a structure subjected to significant ground strain.

The Effects of Mining Subsidence on a Motorway Bridge

Mining subsidence causes ground movements which are imposed on any structure in the area of influence. Bridges are particularly susceptible to subsidence, which frequently causes damage and occasionally collapse. Special bridge designs have been developed to cater for mining subsidence. This paper provides details of the performance of such a structure subjected to significant ground strain.
