FIELD TEST OF A CURVED PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BRIDGE AND COMPARISON WITH MODEL TESTS

Three span curved prestressed concrete box section bridge was field tested and compared with the results from model investigations. In general the predicted and observed responses were in agreement. Discrepancies between the observed and predicted results were due to the model not adequately reproducing the actual boundary conditions. In particular the sliding plate type simple supports induced relatively large moments into the bridge.
