During the feasibility study of the Prins Clausbrug, MOCS performed the fatigue analysis of the bearing systems. A detailed Finite Element Analysis was performed to determine the hot-spot stresses at critical welds. The proposed modifications ensured that the bearings can survive the estimated number of openings of the bridge.
