Abstract:
The reactions at the end bearings of an actual 8-span, 7-girder composite skew bridge are determined experimentally due to self weight and due to a 20-ton truck load. The results are compared with theoretical calculations which involve several assumptions. The investigation is intended to examine the vailidity of the assumptions involved in the analysis.
