Load Distribution Characteristics of Spaced M-Beam Bridge Decks

This paper is the result of ajoint research project between the Department of the Environment (NI) Roads Service and the Department of Civil Engineering, the Queen's University of Belfast, into the economic use of M-beams for bridge decks. The results of load distribution tests on a 11.815 m span M-beam bridge deck with beams spaced at 2 m and 1.5 m and a standard 160 mm reinforced concrete slab are reported. J.
