Abstract

A two-span test structure, with tie-rods to similate approach-slab forces, was subjected to thermal loading. The resultant strains and deflections are correlated with those obtained from a prior theoretical study. It was concluded ~hat the theoretical procedure provides a rational method for predicting the thermal behavior of composite-girder bridge structures.
