Design and assessment of highway bridges requires accurate prediction of the extreme load effects expected during the proposed or remaining life of the structure. Traditionally these effects are calculated using conservative codified deterministic loading models. While this conservatism is relatively insignificant in design, it may be critical in assessment. Advances in weigh-in-motion (WIM) technology, i.e., the process of weighing trucks travelling at full highway speeds, have increased the… CONTINUE READING
