Improving the Strength and Stability of Prestressed Concrete Through-Girder Pedestrian Bridges

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  02/15/2007

Summary:

Because of a growing concern about the overall safety of pedestrian bridges, investigators used laboratory studies and computer simulation to gauge their ductility, strength and stability as compared with AASHTO specifications. Results showed that several modifications to AASHTO bridge specifications will make future pedestrian bridges stronger and more resistant to collapse.
