Description: Technical Report
Abstract: It is widely known that the United States owns and maintains many bridges throughout its highway system, and the Department of the Army owns and maintains over 1,500 bridges. These bridges are on U.S. military installations throughout the world, and they carry pedestrians, civilian and military vehicles, and trains. Like the U.S. infrastructure, these bridges require continual inspection, maintenance, and load capacity assessment The objective of this report is to provide uniformity in the procedures and policies for determining the load capacity of these bridges and also to provide a common reference for this information. Additionally, the report provides a summary of the material developed for a short course on this subject. NOTE: This file is large. Allow your browser several minutes to download the file.
