Single span highway bridges of composite construction are idealized as beams as well as an orthotropic plate. A standard HS-20-44 highway vehicle is represented by a planar, two axle, sprung mass system with a frictional device. The response equations are derived in terms of the natural modal coordinates of the bridge and of displacement coordinates of the vehicle. The bridge dynamic loadings due to the initial bounce of the vehicle and in combination with the braking of the vehicle are investigated for symmetric as well as eccentric loading of the vehilce.
