You may find your longer span, complex bridge structures have higher needs for accommodating structural movements. This can be answered with high load multi-rotational (HLMR) disc bearing assemblies.
Understanding HLMR disc bearing assemblies involves starting with where and why they are used. HLMR bearing assemblies transmit forces while accommodating structural movements. The selection of an appropriate bearing assembly is based on the magnitude of vertical and horizontal forces, as well as the amount of displacement and rotation of the superstructure elements. Based on these requirements, your D.S. Brown team can prepare a custom designed solution.
So, what are HLMR disc bearings?
