The measurement and documentation of construction and service effects for a steel stringer bridge will permit evaluation of the complete state of force in a bridge over its lifetime, together with the corresponding causative effects or events. Accumulated versus transient stresses and forces are evaluated through a regular regimen of long-term monitoring, diagnostic truckload and modal impact testing, and structural analysis.HAM-12608811. was designed with a unique end span to midspan ratio of 0.45: 1. In other words, the midspan of this bridge is over twice the length of the end spans (refer to Section 2.2). The Ohio DOT Bridge Design Manual [Ref. 2-1]anbsp;...
