Extending Application of Simple for Dead and Continuous for Live Load Steel Bridge System to ABC Applications in Seismic Regions - Phase II - Component Testing

During Phase I of the project, suitable details were developed using numerical analysis. The next step is performing component level testing on the connection details prior to a large scale shake table test. The goal of the component test is to proof load the connection between the substructure and superstructure. If designed properly, the failure should not occur within the connection itself. The objective of the proposed project is the design and testing of the component level specimen.
