FUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ACTUAL TRUCK AND AASHO DESIGN LOADINGS FOR SIMPLE SPAN BRIDGES

THE MAXIMUM MOMENT AND SHEAR FORCE ARE USED AS A MEASURE OF OVERLOAD FOR SIMPLE SPAN BRIDGES. OVERLOAD FRACTIONS ARE DEFINED. THESE ARE RATIOS WHICH INDICATE THE AMOUNTS BY WHICH THE MAXIMUM DESIGN MOMENTS AND SHEARS /DEAD PLUS LIVE LOAD/ ARE CHANGED WHEN TRUCKS OF VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS AND LOAD LIMITS CROSS SIMPLE SPAN BRIDGES. THE DESIGN LIVE LOADS CONSIDERED ARE THE AASHO H AND HS LOADING SCHEMES. FUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS WHICH ALLOW THE SYSTEMATIC CALCULATION OF OVERLOAD ARE PRESENTED. THE CONCEPT OF CRITICAL SPAN LENGTH IS UTILIZED. THE EFFECTS OF TRUCKS ON THE MAGNITUDES OF MOMENTS AND SHEARS ARE GENERALIZED BY THE USE OF CERTAIN TRUCK PARAMETERS. /AUTHOR/
