This final report is primarily devoted to the comparison between theoretical calculations and the results of measurements made on different bridge deck models with concrete encased girders. Some recommendations are then formulated concerning the calculation methods which seem better suited to this type of bridge deck. Various lessons are then drawn from the tests carried out on bridge deck models forming variants to the conventional type of bridge decks with concrete encased girders, e.g. those concentrating the steel at the lower fibre or those formed of prefabricated elements assembled by transverse prestressing.
