SPR-4120: Strength Assessment of Older Continuous Slab and T-beam Reinforced Concrete Bridges

The goal of this project is to provide an improved methodology for the load rating of flat-slab and T-beam reinforced concrete bridges in Indiana. An assessment of the impact of three-dimensional analysis on load rating, compared with conventional load rating methodologies and recommendations for bridge classification and rating will be presented.
