STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF AN ORTHOTROPIC STEEL DECK BRIDGE

THE AUTHORS PRESENT THE MAJOR RESULTS OF EXTENSIVE EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTICAL STUDIES ON THE STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF AN ORTHOTROPIC STEEL PLATE DECK BRIDGE. THE RESULTS OF A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF ANALYSIS, WHICH ARE DISCUSSED, COMPARED RELATIVELY AS WELL WITH EACH OTHER AS WITH EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS OBTAINED FROM FIELD STUDIES. RESULTS INDICATE THAT ANALYTICAL METHODS ARE AVAILABLE FOR STUDIES OF DIFFERENT PARTS OF ORTHOTROPIC STEEL DECK BRIDGES. GENERAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN EXPERIMENT AND THEORY-- PARTICULARLY WITH A GRID METHOD OF ANALYSIS--IS NOTED TO BE EXCELLENT. SEVERAL IMPORTANT FEATURES OF THE STRUCTURAL ACTION OF ORTHOTROPIC DECK BRIDGES HAVE BEEN EXPOSED. /AUTHOR/
