A CONTINUOUS SPAN ALUMINUM GIRDER CONCRETE DECK BRIDGE - FINAL REPORT. PART 1 OF 2: FIELD TEST PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION

This report addresses the field testing and analysis of those results to establish the behavior of the original Clive Road Bridge that carried highway traffic over Interstate 80 (I-80) in the northwest region of Des Moines, Iowa. The bridge was load tested in 1959, shortly after its construction and in 1993, just prior to its demolition. This report presents some of the results from both field tests, finite element predictions of the behavior of aluminum bridge girders, and load distribution studies.
