Abstract – The hydrology and hydraulic calculations has been carried out for the proposed box culvert to justify the waterway required for the river crossing the alignment. Structural analysis is a process to analyse a structural system in order to predict the responses of the real structure under the action of expected loading and external environment during the service life of the structure. The present work reflects on the analysis and design of bridges which are the main source of human life which helps to travel from place to place. The modeling and analysis of bridge is carried out by using the software Staad-pro software. The bridge we designed is box culvert bridge. The design loads are considered as per IRC 6. Box culvert is designed by using Staad-pro and results are compared manually.

 

Key Words:  Reinforced cement concrete box culvert, hydraulics calculation, cushion loading, earth pressure, subgrade reaction, sidl, structural design, theoretical calculation, staad pro etc.
