Correspondence on Load Distribution Characteristics of M-Beam Bridge Decks by J. Kirkpatrick, Professor A. E. Long and A. Thompson

Dr. L. A. Clark (M) (University of Birmingham): The authors are to be congratulated for developing design aids which should greatly reduce the design time of a popular form of concrete bridge construction (i.e. M-beam bridge decks). The test data obtained from the four bridges at various stages of construction are particularly valuable, since, to the writer’s knowledge, no previous data have been obtained for either fullsize or true model M-beam bridge decks.
