STUDY OF THE SEGMENTAL BOX GIRDER BRIDGE AT TURKEY RUN: CONSTRUCTION, INSTRUMENTATION, AND DATA COLLECTION

A review is made of the literature pertaining to segmental concrete box girder bridges. A relatively complete description of the construction of the segmental bridge at Turkey Run is presented. The Turkey Run bridge has been instrumented to monitor certain aspects of its short-term and long-term behavior. Details of the instrumentation system design and installation procedure are given. A study has been conducted to determine the transverse flexural response of selected sections due to prescribed truck loadings. Experimental measurements have also been made to determine long-term longitudinal strains and midspan deflections and the daily and seasonal variations in bridge temperatures. The data collected from these tests have been reduced and are presented in a form suitable for evaluation. (FHWA)
