Redundancy of Twin Steel Box Girder Bridges

The objective of this project is to establish a design target performance and safety level for two steel box girder bridges, outline a methodology and approach for assessing the redundancy of the two steel box girder bridges, assess the redundancy of one curved girder bridge using the recommended approach, and summarize the findings and present the results to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
