ULTIMATE LOAD RESPONSE OF A STEEL I BEAM COMPOSITE MULTI-GIRDER SIMPLE SPAN BRIDGE MODEL
The purpose of the research work is to examine the response of a multigirder composite bridge model and to correlate the experimental ultimate load to the value predicted by an analytical technique. The elastic, elastic-plastic, and fully plastic response of the model is presented in terms of deflections and strains in the model. These functions are also compared to the analytical results. The resulting comparison indicates that the analytical technique is an accurate predictor of the ultimate load. Thus, the use of this analytical technique should provide reasonable results in parametric studies.
