Resulte of an experimental-analytical investigation on a reinforced concrete box girder bridge are presenredo The experimental phase consisted of tests on a - scale, 3 P? direct model of an intermediate span of a b* inuous box girder bridge. Experimental data from the tests under symmetrical and unsymmetrical loads were analysed using some of the available analy- sis methods. These results are combined with other available information to formulate some recommendations for design of box girder structures.
