Development of general guidelines on the effects of bridge span range and skew angle range on integral abutment bridges (IABs)

The aim of this research is to improve guidelines for the modeling, design, and construction of IABs in the following areas: (a) The effect of the roadway profile grade on substructure; (b) The constructability of pile supported IABs at a site with shallow bedrock; (c) The effect of ranges of skew angle on axial and bending stresses in the superstructure; (d) The effect of axial and bending stresses in the superstructure caused by thermal expansion and contraction for a range of bridge spans.
