INVESTIGATION OF BRIDGE DECKS WITH CONCRETE ENCASED GIRDERS. TWIN SPAN CONTINUOUS BRIDGE-DECK. TESTS UNDER DYNAMIC LOADS. PART A-TEST. PART B-TABLES AND FIGURES
During the first series of tests, described in this report, both spans were simultaneously subjected to 2,000 cycles of loading, corresponding to that encountered in service by the centre support. Resistance wire and vibrating wire strain-gauges for measuring deflections, cracks and local strains, had shown that the latter stabilized quite rapidly and that the concrete participated to some extent in tension zones.
