This chapter deals with all load types imposed to bridge structures. Typical permanent and live loads such as self-weight, traffic loads, snow and wind loads and thermal loads are presented with reference to international codes for structural loadings. Special loads such as seismic loads, accidental loads, blast loads, support settlement, centrifugal forces etc. are also given. The designer must take into account all loads specified by the codes as well as special load cases due to structural type of the bridge.
