STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF A CURVED TWO SPAN REINFORCED CONCRETE BOX GIRDER BRIDGE MODEL. VOLUME I. DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, INSTRUMENTATION AND LOADING

This is the first of a three volume sequence as follows: Vol. 1 - Design, Construction, Instrumentation and Loading; Vol. 2 - Reduction, Analysis and Interpretation of Results; and Vol. 3 - Detailed Tables of Experimental and Analytical Results. In the present volume a detailed study of the instrumentation, construction and testing of a large scale, horizontally curved, two span, four cell, reinforced concrete box girder bridge model is presented. The selection of the model scale, the choice and location of instrumentation, and the system of data acquisition are discussed.
