Consideration of Eccentric Wheel Load Application for Weld Design at ULS
Tips & Tricks
The eccentric wheel load application of 1/4 of the rail head width has to be considered only for the fatigue design from damage class S3 according to DIN EN 1993‑6. An additional input option in detail settings allows you to consider this eccentricity for the fatigue design at the ultimate limit state as well. By selecting this option, the design with the eccentric load applied is always considered without regard to the damage class.
