Freyssinet guide bearings
It is made up of a bottom plate with a rail and a top plate with two guides.
It is designed to accept horizontal movements in the axis of the rail and to transfer perpendicular horizontal loads (it allows movement on one axis and rotation on two axes). It does not take up vertical load.
The shear key is usually combined with free-sliding bearings on either side of it. It allows the “guiding” function to be separated from the bearings, which is usually necessary with very high horizontal loads.
It is made up of a bottom plate and a top plate connected by a pin.
It supports horizontal loads on both axes of the bridge.
It does not support vertical loads and does not allow any movement
Like the shear key, it is usually combined with free sliding bearings.
