by Stuart G. Reid, Univ of Sydney, Sydney, Australia,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Probabilistic Mechanics and Structural and Geotechnical Reliability


Probabilistic models of sustained live loads and equivalent uniformly distributed loads are discussed with regard to pattern load effects. A simple equivalent pattern load is identified for continuous beams.
