CORRELATION OF THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL DATA FOR HIGHWAY BRIDGES. VOLUME II. MILITARY LOADING
A computer program analytical routine 'SSAP-2' is used to correlate a theoretical finite element analysis with experimental results for three typical two-lane multi-span girder and slab highway bridges in Tennessee. The programmed response for a fourth bridge is also included. All three bridges gave excellent correlation between predicted and experimental responses for deflection and moment distribution of the HET-70 loading to the main carrying members of the bridge. It is concluded that maximum stresses induced by future unique heavy military loads can be compared on a timely basis with the highway bridge structure's load carrying capability by use of the computerized theoretical method.
