Abstract:
Currently, a large number of concrete highway bridges having box-sections with cantilevered deck slabs are being constructed. This paper presents an investigation of horizontally curved box-beam bridges through model analysis and experimentation. A plastic model was constructed and tested under various loading conditions.
