The Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges are intended to serve as a standardor guide for the preparation of State specifications and for reference by ily, the specifications set forth minimum requirements which are consistentwith current practice, and certain modifications may be necessary to suit local apply to ordinary highway bridges and.

This report presents the findings of the research performed on distribution of wheel loads on highway bridges under funding from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP).

This study was performed in two phases; the first phase (NCHRP ) concentrating on beam and slab, and box girder bridges; and the second phase (NCHRP 12 Cited by: Distribution of Wheel Loads on Highway Bridges. TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has released Synthesis Distribution of Wheel Loads on Highway Bridges.

The objective of this synthesis is to develop information on distribution of wheel loads on highway bridges. Live-load distribution among the various components of a floor system is one of the key elements in determining member size, strength, and serviceability of a bridge.

From gaining a quick familiarity with the AASHTO LRFD specifications to seeking broader guidance on highway bridge design—Design of Highway Bridges is the one-stop, ready reference that puts information at your fingertips, while Guide specifications for distribution of loads for highway bridges serving as an excellent study guide and reference for the U.S.

Professional Engineering Examination. loads on highway bridges. For over 30 yr the "Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges" of the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) has in-eluded a procedure for determining this load distribution.

Although several detailed studies were conducted on specific bridge types, many. The Michigan Bridge Analysis Guide (the Guide) has been prepared to assist engineers with and to promote uniformity in analyzing highway bridges for load-carrying capacity.

The process of preparing a bridge load capacity analysis has many discrete steps. AASHTO. Standard Specifications for Highway Bridgg()es (LFD) – 17thEdition Edition -- Load Factor Design. LRFDBridgeDesignSpecificationsLRFD Bridge Design Specifications. Load Load ResistanceResistance Factor Design.

the LRFR method. AASHTO Guide Manual for Condition Evaluation and Load and Resistance Factor Rating (LRFR) of Highway Bridges was the direct product of the research. This Guide Manual eventually evolved into the current AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation (MBE).

The reliability-based LRFR method is contained in Section 6A of the MBE. The AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications are intended for use in the design, evaluation, and rehabilitation of bridges.

The specifications employ the Load and Resistance Factor.

This NCHRP digest presents the findings from NCHRP Project"Distribution of Wheel Loads on Highway Bridges". The project was initiated in the mids in order to develop comprehensive specification provisions for distribution of wheel loads in highway bridges. Instead a few of the bridges that are typical of those found in the United States are highlighted.

Stone Arch Bridges The Roman bridge builders first come to mind when dis- cussing stone arch bridges.
