Destructive Testing and Ultimate Capacity of Skewed Simple-span Bridges

In order to evaluate the performance of existing FE models, a 1/5-scale model bridge was constructed and tested to its ultimate capacity. The results of the test showed that the assumption of a linear elastic concrete deck gave the FE model a greater stiffness and ultimate capacity. In order to predict the ultimate capacity, an advanced concrete model that allows for deterioration must be implemented.WORK CITED AASHTO 2004 LRFD Design Manual 3rd Edition.
