The design codes and calculation methods related to the corrugated steel plate (CSP) bridges and culverts say only on the minimum soil height. This value is connected with the bridge span and shell height. In the case of static and dynamic loads (like passing the vehicles), such approach seems to be reasonable. However, it is important to know how the CSP bridges with high the soil covers behave under the seismic loads. This paper is presented the result of numerical study of CSP bridge with different high cover under seismic excitation. The analysed CSP railway bridge in the cross section has two closed pipe-arches. The span of shells is 4.40 m and the height of shells is 2.80 m. The load-carrying structure was constructed as two shells assembled from CSP sheets, designed with a depth of 0.05 m, pitch of 0.15 m, and plate thickness of 0.003 m. The real soil cover depth over the CSP structure (including ballast, blanket and backfill) equals 2.40 m. In this study two heights of soil cover were analysed (2.40 m and 5.00 m). Numerical analysis was conducted using the DIANA program based on finite element method (FEM). A linear model with El Centro records and Time History was used to analyse the problem.
