The paper reports the causes of the breakage of the shoe protrusions of Tohoku Shinkansens railroad bridge in Japan by the earthquake. The test described makes up a part of a series of programs intended to analyze the breaking mechanism of the shoe and to establish a more rational and economic shoe design set-up. This report is the result of efforts to clarify the resistance of the shoe of the type damaged to the static horizontal force and to discuss the process of breakage from the standpoint of static load.
