If there is car to pass, get traffic rated grating, which is readily available from most bar grate manufacturers. Why worry/mess around the old grate? You can do a cal yourself, or by someone else to figure out the ball-part strength though. RE: H-20 Traffic Rated Vault Grate

The grating period and the effective index of processing speed and the dead weight load as shown in Table 1. Instron Corp., Canton, MA.
Plastic grating offers a lighter-weight solution than common aluminum grating or steel and metal grates, and can easily be fabricated into custom specific designs. Typical applications include floor systems, walkways, work platforms, stairs, ramps, trench covers, drain grates and catwalks.

With a much higher strength-to-weight ratio, molded HLC fiberglass grating is easy to handle, making for quick installation. In stock at a distribution center close to you. National Grating distribution centers stock grating that satisfies general industrial needs all the way up to high load requirements like forklift traffic.
A novel operation system to detect train vibration and train weight using FBG sensing network has been designed and tested in Hong Kong. The purpose of the system is for real time condition monitoring of trains. Because of the fast response of optical systems, the trains can be monitored in real-time during its normal service without any special arrangement.

multiplexing capability - hundreds of sensing points along a single strand of optical fiber with length up to 100 km! 2. FIBER BRAGG GRATING SENSORS Over the last few years, optical fiber sensors have seen increased acceptance and widespread use for structural sensing and health monitoring applications in
Banding. Heavy duty gratings are commonly subjected to shock and impact loads and it is highly recommended that all open ends be banded. The welded band bar helps distribute impact loads and minimizes distortion when subjected to repetitive traffic patterns.
A huge amount of vehicles causes reduction of road space, often accidents and traffic jams. Unfortunately, our present traffic systems cannot manage with the increased flows, for example, only the past two decades has seen an 84% increase in the number of cars. This became the main reason for the development of a new approach to traffic monitoring.
From wave effect, grating layouts can be seen as two groups: Waveguide grating (See Figure 1a and 1b) and surface gratings, or volume gratings (See figure 1c and 1d). OptiFDTD is suitable for all of these grating simulations. The following are samples for Grating simulation and numerical validation. Figure 1: Selected Grating layout
FHWA Fiber-Optics Research Program: Critical Knowledge For Infrastructure Improvement by Richard A. Livingston. Thousands of motorists driving across a nondescript highway bridge on Interstate 10 in Las Cruces, ., have no idea that they are participating in a landmark research program.
Aluminum grating is light-weight, corrosion resistance and has a high strength to weight ratio; The most common uses for metal bar grating is in commercial and industrial flooring, including mezzanines, catwalks, platforms, ramps, subway and sidewalk grating. Choose metal grating for your flooring when you need:
Having defined all the necessary parameters for the Fiber Bragg grating, you will now learn how work in the Multiple View the Project Window, you have access to different Parameter buttons, displayed on the left side of the Project Window.
The Heavy Duty steel grating can be appropriate for highways, airport runways, bridge floors and wheel traffic applications. Another bar grating application includes drainage grates, which are an integral part of the interior of industrial plants, and the exterior landscape all around us. Also known as bar grating trench grating, these grates
Metal Bar Grating is the workhorse of the industrial flooring market and has served industry for decades. Strong and durable with an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, metal bar grating can be easily fabricated to nearly any configuration.
Steel Bar Grating, also known as Welded Steel Bar Grate is extremely strong and durable for all load bearing applications and is primarily used for pedestrian and light vehicle traffic. Steel Bar Grating is available in a variety of bearing bar spacing and thicknesses depending on applications and load requirements.
Heavy Duty Grating is a pultruded bar type grating that can be designed and used like traditional metal grates. The solid individual bearing bars are designed to take heavy wheel traffic such as fork lifts, tow motors and truck traffic. Heavy duty grating is constructed of the same type composite used in the other products.

Tru-Weld Heavy Duty Steel Bar Grating is commonly used for floor trenches and sump covers exposed to heavy equipment traffic. It is used extensively through out mining, power generation, highways, airfields, and on truck terminal loading docks and ramps. It is suitable for large single span conditions or where grating must be support extreme loads.
