"The objective of this project was to understand why the Southeastern vertical strut of the Paseo Bridge located in Kansas City, MO, fractured after 50 years of service.

Results from the investigative testing were combined with finite element models of the bridge and strut under service loading conditions to determine why fracture occurred"--Abstract, page iii.
