Abstract

Field tests of curved steel bridge response under traffic and controlled loads, are presented. Data collected from the field tests are used to investigate a number of issues related to curved bridge behavior. Data from tests with the cross frames being removed and a static test, accompanied in the process, is used to investigate the influence of unbraced length on curved, composite I-girder response. The quasi-static and static states of the tests help to determine the accuracy of different level of analysis technique for prediction of curved bridge behavior.
