  • ABSTRACT This report gives results of some new studies performed to validate the european road traffic load model proposed by the Eurocode EC1. Weight in motion has developed greatly in the last ten years and confidence in the accuracy of recorded data has increased significantly. Traffic data recently obtained from a number of representative European sites are used to re-calibrate the codified main load model of the European bridge loading code, Eurocode 1 Part 3. A wide range of real and… CONTINUE READING
