LABORATORY MODEL TESTING OF BRIDGE PROTECTIVE SYSTEMS AND DEVICES (FENDERING)

This report presents investigations and descriptions of a computer and laboratory model study of bridge protective systems and devices. Eight bridge protective systems were run by computer analysis to ascertain their effectiveness as a protective system. In addition, two bridges: the Benjamin Harrison Bridge and the Berwick Bay Bridge were analyzed by the computer and by hydraulic model testing. Based upon the analysis of these ten bridges and their respective protective systems, design standards and criteria were developed for AREA and AASHTO. (Author)
