Abstract: The University of Colorado at Boulder completed a major bridge testing and analysis program for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). According to FHWA, this study has produced the largest amount of detailed data ever collected on truck loading and bridge response. In this paper, statistics of several truck loading variables will be presented.
