FIELD DYNAMIC LOADING STUDIES OF HIGHWAY BRIDGES IN THE US, 1948-1965

A COMPILATION OF PERTINENT INFORMATION IS PRESENTED FOR ALL HIGHWAY BRIDGES ON WHICH EXPERIMENTAL DYNAMIC LOAD DATA HAVE BEEN GATHERED IN THIS COUNTRY SINCE 1948. THE BRIDGES ARE GROUPED AS SIMPLE, CONTINUOUS OR CANTILEVER SPAN TYPES IN THREE GENERAL SUPERSTRUCTURE CATEGORIES' STEEL GIRDER, CONCRETE AND MISCELLANEOUS. THE TABULATION PROVIDES A BRIEF SUMMARY OF CONSTRUCTION DETAILS, DYNAMIC MEASUREMENTS TAKEN AND THE VEOLCITIES, POSITIONS, AND MAGNITUDES OF TEST LOADS. THIS COMPILATION OF DYNAMIC BRIDGE RESEARCH TEST PARAMETERS PROVIDES THE BRIDGE DESIGN AND RESEARCH ENGINEER A READY GUIDE TO FIELD BRIDGE STUDY INFORMATION NOT PREVIOUSLY AVAILABLE IN ONE SOURCE. /AUTHOR/
