These recommendations for analysis and design are part of a series of reports which will ultimately be combined ACI Committee 443 to make a complete recommended practice for reinforced concrete bridges. The section or ultimate load analysis and strength design is patterned after ACI 318-71 and strength design criteria of the Federal Highway Administration. Criteria for deflection and Fatigue loading to assure minimum serviceability requirements0 structures meeting these strength requirements are given There is also a working stress design procedure intended for use in small bridges, which satisfies both strength and serviceability requirements.
