The Analysis of Gateshead Highway

This paper describes the analysis of Gateshead Highway, an elevated urban road viaduct. The viaduct is a multicellular box of prestressed concrete with complex ramp intersections. The analysis was carried out using an equivalent grillage and this was justified by comparing it with a more sophisticated conceptual model, and with the results of model tests. W.J.R. Smyth and S. Srinivasan
