Bridge structures are exposed to severe environmental conditions over their lifetime as they are continuously gaining and losing heat from solar radiation, irradiation to the sky and convection to or from the surrounding atmosphere. These conditions cause large temperature variations within the structure at any instant of time. In concrete bridges, such temperature variations can result in stresses which can be as large as those caused by dead and live loads. Prediction of such temperature… CONTINUE READING
