Reserve Strength on Highway Bridges
Second International Conference on Society in Science
Highway bridges usually possess reserved strength to accommodate occasional overloads although they were designed for standard loads. It is commonly practiced that the strength of a bridge component is allowed to be higher than what is required by the design specifications. Depending on a number of factors, this additional amount of strength may be substantial. This paper addresses this issue. Selected highway bridges in the U.S.A. were evaluated to study the effect of the additional strength on the reliability of the bridges. Virtual Presentation in English
