AN EFFICIENT METHOD FOR EVALUATING THE LOAD RESPONSE BEHAVIOUR OF STEEL AND PRESTRESS CONCRETE BRIDGES

Four bridges on the interstate system in Montana were field tested under vehicle loads as part of a study on the effects of heavy Canadian style trucks on the highway infrastructure. Three prestress concrete and one steel bridge were tested in four days under various moving loads. The data were used to study bridge behavior and calculate bridge load ratings.
