Dynamic response of single span and 3 span continuous highway bridges to transient loads; results of more than 1000 specific cases are analyzed to evaluate effect of load characteristics and bridge geometry on highway bridge impact; it is concluded that springing of vehicles is important factor affecting dynamic response to highway bridge and that present specifications do not adequately provide for dynamic response of bridges to design loads.
